Aliens in the Arctic

Dreaming of Arctic adventures, thousands of people trek into the wild nature of Svalbard. But is the Arctic tundra still a pristine no-man's land? NINA-researcher Jeseamine Bartlett found that invasive species follow in the tracks of humans! Luckily she and a team of researchers also developed a way to monitor them. The research is done by researchers from the Norwegian Polar institute, the Norwegian Institute for Nature research, ETH Zürich and NTNU. It was supported by the Governor of Svalbard, The Norwegian Environment Agency and the Arctic council. Moving out of town?
