About the Science
- On Banks Island in Canada's High Arctic, Inuit hunters have a close relationship with the natural world. They have observed changes in the permafrost, the fish harvests, and the landscape. Their observations of changes over the decades provide an important source of climate change data to scientists who study the Arctic.
- Comments from expert scientist: Concepts are clearly described, vocabulary is appropriate for the lay person. The problems with using oral tradition as scientific evidence are not presented.
