The figure shows the probability of complete loss of northern Fennoscandian areas suitable for palsas during the 21st century estimated using a probabilistic projection of climate change for the SRES A1B scenario
A bioclimatic envelope model of the Fennoscandian palsa mire distribution was used with a probabilistic projection of climate change for the 21st century.

Appreciate wildlife, but be sure to watch wild animals from a distance and avoid feeding them. Remember, the scent you leave when you touch a nest or a lair may scare the parents off for good. Instead of touching, try to find out more about them and maybe even discover how you can contribute to their protection.
