September Science Nature takes a peek into the kingdom of city foxes

The fox is one of those species that have benefited from the changes caused by humans in the environment. In addition to cities, it is also taking over the field in Lapland’s warming nature, where the native fox has had to give way, notes the editor-in-chief Jukka Ruukki in his editorial. Knowing this, the news about the successful nesting of the mink in Enontekiö seems even more gratifying.

In addition to Naali, the new issue of Tiede Luonno covers the following topics, among others:
