Climate change as (dis)equilibrium: Behavioral resilience in the Greenland Arctic

Publikation: Bidrag til tidsskrift/Konferencebidrag i tidsskrift /Bidrag til avisTidsskriftartikelForskningpeer review

Despite the evident challenges posed by arctic environments past and present, and despite the widespread acknowledgement that human population histories in the Arctic have historically been quite dynamic, it is often assumed that traditional pre-colonial populations were in perfect equilibrium with their environment, that they were perfectly adapted to their local environmental conditions. This adaptationist assumption is strongly challenges by recent research in ecology, which has shown that many arctic ecological communities are in fact far from equilibrium with environmental conditions.
