— encounter small ecosystems

The surrounding of Kilpisjärvi is host to many microworlds — relatively small places with prominent features like rocks, ponds, or streams. They all have in common that they gather a comparably large variety of lifeforms around themselves, marking them as small ecosystems.

During residencies in 2019 (Ars-Bioarctica) and 2023 (Science Trail) at the Kilpisjärvi Biology Station, I identified such microworlds and spend considerable time with them.
