Publisher's Description:

This book covers the discovery and history of the northernmost breeding population of peregrine falcons in the world, located near the Thule Air Base in northwest Greenland. Drawing on thirteen years of research, the authors present a comprehensive set of findings on the biology and ecology of this remarkable population and provide critical evidence and documentation of the ways climate change is enabling profoundly new ranges for migratory populations.
