Brady P.'s insight:
Currency - This video was made in 2012, making it fairly recent. Other videos or articles like this have been made since its creation, but its references are still up to date. Relevance - This article does answer the question by providing thorough details about arctic tundras. It is very easy to use because it is just a video Authority - The creator of this video is not very credible, they do not seem to have any credentials. It is difficult to find any info on the creator. Accuracy - The information in the video seems to be accurate, but I cannot be sure because I am not an expert on arctic tundras. I also don't know where this person got this information. Purpose - This video is meant to inform people of arctic tundras. I don't think there is any bias because it is simply an informational video.

Understanding the importance of terrestrial responses to climate change: an Arctic tundra case study | Arctic Tundra | Scoop.it
As winters' warm, storms and droughts intensify, and sea level rises, citizens across the world are increasingly concerned with the consequences of rising atmospheric greenhouse gas concentrations.
Brady P.'s insight:
Currency - I could not find the date that this case study was published, but all of the information seems to be up to date and thorough. Relevance - This case study is very detailed and filled with good information. It is relevant to the question because it goes into detail about the arctic tundra Authority - The author of this case study is a NOAA Climate and Global Change Postdoctoral Fellow from the University of California Irvine, so she is a very credible source. Also her sources are very credible, as is the website that I found the case study (Mundus Maris Science and Arts for Sustainability) Accuracy - Like I said before, this article is very detailed and thorough, and the information seems to be very accurate as well. Relevance - This is very relevant because it thoroughly discusses the topic of arctic tundras. Also, I did not detect any bias.

Photographer finds radiance in wildlife of Arctic tundra

Photographer finds radiance in wildlife of Arctic tundra | Arctic Tundra | Scoop.it
A snowy tundra might seem harsh and desolate from afar, but you'll quickly realize just how much life teems in the Arctic when you glimpse the photography of Ivan Kislov.
Brady P.'s insight:
Currency - This article was published on November 24th, 2014, which was only a few weeks ago, so obviously this article is recent and up to date. His resources have not changed since because he is the only source of the information/photographs Relevance - This article is relevant because it provides images of animals in their natural habitat in the arctic tundra. However, the only question that it answers is what kind of animals live in this biome. Authority - The author of this article is only a photo editor for MotherNatureNetwork.com, so she does not have very many credentials or credibility. Also, the photographer that took these photos is not a professional photographer. Accuracy - The information seems is accurate. Also, most of the article is photographs. Purpose - This article's sole purpose is to show the types of animals and environment in an arctic tundra.

Reindeer populations are in decline (even in the North Pole)

Reindeer populations are in decline (even in the North Pole) | Arctic Tundra | Scoop.it
Closer contact with humans in recent decades has created a host of problems for the iconic animals.
Brady P.'s insight:
Currency - This article was actually published today, making it very recent and up to date. Relevance - This is a very specific article. It doesn't just talk about the arctic tundra, it talks more specifically about the reindeer population in arctic regions. Because it involves the arctic tundra, this makes this article relevant. Authority - I cannot find more information on this author, so i would imagine she does not have many credentials. Also this website does not seem very credible Accuracy - This article seems pretty accurate, but again, I am not an expert on the arctic tundra or reindeer populations. Relevance - This article can be relevant, because by studying an animal that lives in this biome we can further understand the characteristics of the arctic tundra. I didn't detect any bias in this article.
