Record #202385:

The elusive narwhal in a rapidly changing Arctic / Mads Peter Heide-Jørgensen.

Title: The elusive narwhal in a rapidly changing Arctic / Mads Peter Heide-Jørgensen.
Author(s): Heide-Jørgensen, Mads Peter.
Date: 2009.
In: Circle. (2009.), Vol. 4 (2009)
Abstract: Discusses extent to which narwhals (Monodon monoceros) may be vulnerable to larger ecosystem changes brought on by climate change. Argues that narwhals are most climate-sensitive of Arctic marine mammals, owing to restricted and specialised distribution, limited diet, low plasticity in migration patterns and low abundance.
Notes:

Circle. Vol. 4 :17-18 (2009).

Special issue: The changing Arctic : how species are being impacted.
