                    The pika is known to respond to climate change more readily than other species. A visit to Niwot Ridge in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado shows where research is conducted to measure changes in pika populations. Chris Ray is a Research Associate at the Institute of Arctic and Alpine Research (INSTAAR) based in Boulder, Colorado.
