It is a remarkable how little is known to science about either the ways or the extent to which weather conditions affects the growth, survival and reproductive performance of semi-domesticated reindeer. What is clear – at least in populations of wild ruminants - is that weather can affect the performance of animals and other in a variety of ways and over a variety of timescales.
