Earth Institute: A New Global Archive Helps Researchers Chart Changes in Arctic Animals’ Behavior

Earth Institute, Columbia University: A New Global Archive Helps Researchers Chart Changes in Arctic Animals’ Behavior. “Researchers from more than 100 universities, government agencies and conservation groups across 17 countries are involved in the archive, which is hosted by the Max Planck Institute. It currently contains over 200 projects with the movement data of more than 8,000 marine and terrestrial animals from 1991 to the present. ‘Our goal is to use the archive to build a global community across institutions and political boundaries,’ said Martin Wikelski, director at the Max Planck Institute.”
