Increasingly Isolated and Critically Important - the Changing Ecology of the Russian Arctic

The talk will discuss Kerby’s climate change research in the Siberian Yamal peninsula and his documentation of the collaboration between an international team of researchers and the Indigenous reindeer herding communities.

Jeff Kerby is researcher at the Arctic Research Center at Aarhus University, Denmark and an Institute of Arctic Studies visiting fellow at Dartmouth College. He is an ecologist and geographer whose work explores how climate change impacts ecological dynamics of plants and large herbivores in diverse Arctic and alpine systems. As a documentary photographer, Jeff produces short- and long-form science and natural history photo-narratives, revealing insights about the diverse communities involved in climate change knowledge production and research, exploring the nuance that binds ecology, natural history, and society.
