Arctic ground squirrels hibernate in winter. Why don’t musk oxen and moose? What is hibernation, exactly? How does it work, and why don’t all arctic mammals do it? Dr. Buck will answer these questions and more, such as how scientific research on hibernation might have useful applications for human survival.
