Life Linked to Ponds Leader's Manual (size North American letter size)

This Leaders Manual and its related pocket field guide look at some of the organisms and processes closely associated with ponds. The pocket field guide focuses on a set of plants and animals that are associated with ponds with brief information about how they fit into an ecosystem. The Leaders Manual provides background information about freshwater ponds, the nature of ecosystems and some of the changes and threats that could affect Arctic ecosystems and biodiversity. Appendix A provides more detailed information about the organisms in the pocket field guide. Appendix B provides printable worksheets for the activities designed to get young people either individually or in groups out on the land and actively investigating the natural world around them.

Circumpolar Protected Areas Monitoring: Arctic Protected Areas Monitoring Scheme Background Paper

Background paper for an Arctic protected areas monitoring scheme that would identify a suite of biodiversity monitoring measures that would be commonly monitored across the Arctic and implemented in a standardized way by each agency. This initiative is intended to enable coordinated reporting of biodiversity in Arctic protected areas and to provide a circumpolar understanding of change occurring within protected areas around the Arctic region.

Arctic Marine Biodiversity Monitoring Plan

The Arctic Marine Biodiversity Monitoring Plan (CBMP-Marine Plan) is the first of the CBMP’s four pan-Arctic biodiversity monitoring plans. The overall goal of the CBMP-Marine Plan is to improve our ability to detect and understand the causes of long-term change in the composition, structure and function of Arctic marine ecosystems, as well as to develop authoritative assessments of key elements of Arctic marine biodiversity (e.g., key indicators, ecologically pivotal and/or other important taxa).

State of the Arctic Marine Biodiversity Report: Key Findings and Advice for Monitoring

The State of the Arctic Marine Biodiversity Report identifies trends in key marine species and points to important gaps in biodiversity monitoring efforts across key ecosystem components in: sea ice biota, plankton, benthos, marine fishes, seabirds and marine mammals. Changes in these species are likely to indicate changes in the overall marine environment.
