The wolf spider Pardosa glacialis is extremely common in the Arctic tundra. If, in future, it produces two generations of offspring during a season, these may have a significant effect on the prey on which the spider lives. Photo: Jörg U. Hammel
The snow disappears earlier and earlier from the Arctic tundra and climate change therefore entails a longer growth season for Arctic plants and animals. Photo: Toke T. Høye.

Spider baby boom in a warmer Arctic

Climate change leads to longer growing seasons in the Arctic. A new study, which has just been published in Proceedings of the Royal Society B, show that predators like wolf spiders respond to the changing conditions and have been able to produce two clutches of offspring during the short Arctic summer.
