The research project combines knowledge of the function of current ecosystems with data from prehistoric DNA in order to generate scientifically supported predictions of how Arctic ecosystems will be affected by future climate changes.

The project was part of the expedition Petermann 2015 with the Swedish icebreaker Oden. The research team conducted field work in Hall Land and Washington Land in Greenland and on Ellesmere Island in Canada.
