Data from: Climate-associated tundra thaw pond formation and range expansion of boreal zooplankton predators

Derek J. Taylor, Matthew J. Ballinger, Andrew S. Medeiros & Alexey A. Kotov
Most of the freshwater component of the Earth's surface is composed of shallow tundra ponds. These high latitude ecosystems have been exposed to a variety of abiotic disturbances associated with recent environmental change. However, the biological significance of these changes remains poorly understood. Here, we characterize the abiotic disturbance to the shallow tundra ponds of northwest Alaska. We used historical aerial imagery to determine that up to 53% of the sampled ponds have formed during...
