Our members share resources, facilities, and expertise to build post-secondary education programs that are relevant and accessible to northern students.

      Greater snow geese nest in the eastern Arctic and winter in the mid-Atlantic states. Lesser snow geese breed from the eastern to the western Arctic and sub-Arctic portions of Hudson and James bays. Ross’ geese nest primarily in the central Arctic and winter in western and central portions of the United States, though their wintering grounds. Recent studies have shown the Arctic is undergoing significant change. In , the summer sea-ice minimum was the second lowest in recorded history ( was the lowest recorded minimum). This, along with changes in terrestrial fluxes and warming temperatures, have likely cascaded into the ecosystems with unknown consequences to primary production, air-sea exchange of CO .

Get this from a library. Current research on Arctic geese: proceedings of a symposium at Voksenåsen, Oslo, October, [Fridtjof Mehlum; Malcolm Alexander Ogilvie;]. Barnacle geese. After nearly non-stop migration, in an attempt to cope with a rapidly warming Arctic, the geese need time on the breeding grounds to build up body stores before they can start.

The book takes its name from an enigmatic, self-referential, bas-de-page illustration that shows a choir of geese and a fox singing from a large chant manuscript with a wolf as their choirmaster. The broad goal of the project is to provide a critical model for both re-integrating the arts and recontextualizing them historically.

While in the Middle Ages the disappearance of birds in certain seasons was thought to result from transformation (‘Barnacle’ geese hid in clams during summer) or birds hiding underwater, the first expeditions to the Arctic showed us.

The aim of the expedition was the study of breeding of geese and other wildfowl of the area. North American populations of most goose species have remained stable or have increased in recent decades (USFWS and Canadian Wildlife Service ).

Some populations, however, have declined or historically have had small numbers of individuals, and thus are of special concern.

Individual populations of geese should be maintained to ensure that they provide aesthetic. As pointed out in the book’s introduction by Richard McCabe, very few books deserve being called a classic. First published inthe various editions of Ducks, Geese, and Swans of North America—authored by Francis K.

Kortright (), Frank C. Bellrose (, ), and this new edition by Guy Baldassarre ()—are deservedly placed in that category among the. The snow goose (Anser caerulescens), consisting of both a white morph and dark morph (blue goose), is a North American species of goose, collectively with Ross's goose often referred to as "white geese" or "light geese." Its name derives from the typically white taxonomic authorities placed this species and the other "white geese" in the genus : Anatidae.

The experience was undoubtedly positive and informative both in meeting biologists whose work I read every day, but also to hear all the current research and plenary talks surrounding arctic geese.

As a shorebird biologist I do not have the extensive field experience working with geese and it was great to listen to all the background.A team of experts headed by Volker Schier and Corine Schleif opens the Geese Book to scholars and provides a window for broader audiences.
