The hunt for Arctic aliens

Whilst they do not hunt for extra-terrestrial aliens that may or may not be hidden under the ice (as some on the more unbridled sections of the internet would rather they did), hunting for terrestrial aliens is exactly what they do. Ronja Wedegärtner and Jesamine Bartlett recall their team’s expedition in the high-Arctic Svalbard to monitor alien flora and publish their latest research which presents the most complete survey of alien vascular species in the archipelago to date.

You can read their full story here. Special shout-out for this fantastic animated movie to explain the risks of bringing sneaky beasties to the Arctic!
