We are excited to announce that the Herbivory Network project called “Identification of data gaps in tundra herbivory research” has received funding. This funding will support the first phase of the development of a map of herbivory research conducted throughout the Arctic. Over the course of two workshops, a team will develop a systematic mapping protocol that will aid in the identification of key gaps in our knowledge of herbivory. The project is led by Eeva Soininen and James Speed, and brings together a small group of experts on herbivory from the Herbivory Network and the Network for Arthropods of the Tundra (NeAT).
