Project Description: The researchers will examine the cycles in lemming abundance (i.e., increases and decreases in the lemming population) for the western arctic region. Ongoing research suggests that lemmings in the Pearce Point area do not appear to reach very high numbers as has been noted in the eastern arctic and Scandinavia.
