Julie Maria Falk with co-authors Niels Martin Schmidt (Aarhus University), Torben R. Christensen and Lena Ström have a paper selected as a monthly highlight paper - "a collection of papers published throughout the year that have been specially selected by our editors for their particular significance, advances made within the field, multidisciplinary interest and scientific impact" in Environmental Research Letters.

Further, their research on the effects of large grazing herbivores on the vegetation composition and carbon balance in the Arctic is being referred to in an article in ERL Perspective:"Grazing in Arctic pealands - an unknown agent in the global carbon budget". The authors of the article refers to the work by Falk et al as to highlight the potential of grazers in the Arctic to alter ecosystem processes, a subject that is largely uninvestigated but could have the potential to act as a major player in the carbon budget globally.
