Arctic Flora and Fauna: Status and Conservation

Arctic Flora and Fauna: Status and Conservation

This is the first truely circumpolar overview of Arctic biodiversity and provides a clear understanding of the importance of the Earth's largest ecoregion and its status in the face of a rapidly changing world. It observes that while much of the Arctic was in its natural state and that the impacts of human activity were relatively minor, individuals, species and ecosystems throughout the Arctic faced threats from many causes, and that the long-term consequencies of human impacts were unknown. It particularly noted that the information necessary to determine status and trends of Arctic fauna was fragmentary and almost non-existent for flora.
