One of the most common dishes in this area is a sort of mixture of Chukchi cabbage with a small quantity of coltsfoot (Tussilago farfara) and other bitter plants, such as mountain sorrel (Oxyria digyna), Arctic sorrel (Rumex arcticus), and Nelson's saxifrage (Saxifraga nelsoniana), to which seal fat and caviar is added, and the mixture is then left to ferment.

In order to determine whether the differences between treatments (warm/control) and habitat types observed in the previous experiment are due to phenotypic plasticity or evolutionary adaptation, I performed a reciprocal transplant experiment with three species that are abundant in the ITEX plots (forbs Oxyria digyna and Papaver radica-tum, and grass Arctagrostis latif blia).
