        The International Circumpolar Surveillance climate change and infectious disease working group. The International Circumpolar Surveillance of Emerging Infectious Diseases (ICS) is an Arctic Council, SDWG project that aims to link public health laboratories, institutes and academic centres for the purpose of monitoring and sharing information on infectious diseases of concern, collaborating Cited by:   The Conservation of Arctic Flora and Fauna (CAFF)’s Circumpolar Biodiversity Monitoring Program (CBMP) is developing a suite of indicators to provide a better understanding of how Arctic biodiversity is changing—from species to habitats to ecosystem processes, functions and services. A quick update on one such indicator is provided below. The Land Cover Change Index.

      Over time, the Inuit have migrated throughout the Arctic regions of Canada, Greenland, Russia and the United States. Other Circumpolar North indigenous peoples include the Chukchi, Evenks, Inupiat, Khanty, Koryaks, Nenets, Sami, Yukaghir, and Yupik, who still refer to . Circumpolar Arctic Flora and Fauna (CAFF) technical report. The map production schedule is described below. The legend for this map will be based on plant functional types. During the workshop, tables of plant functional types occurring in each area of the map were created. Canada, Alaska, and Greenland were combined into one table.

      Outlines the goals, objectives, and descriptions of the Conservation of Arctic Flora and Fauna (CAFF) Expert Working Groups: CAFF's Flora Group (CFG), the Circumpolar Seabird Working Group (CBird), the Circumpolar Protected Areas Network (CPAN). The Arctic Circle is one of the two polar circles and the most northerly of the five major circles of latitude as shown on maps of Earth. It marks the northernmost point at which the centre of the noon sun is just visible on the December solstice and the southernmost point at which the centre of the midnight sun is just visible on the June solstice. The region north of this circle is known as the Arctic, and the zone .

The Circumboreal Vegetation Mapping (CBVM) project is an international collaboration among vegetation scientists to create a new vegetation map of the boreal region at a million scale with a common legend and mapping protocol.

Circumpolar Flora Group (CFG) Home Arctic ecosystems are dramatically altered through changes to the vegetation, destruction of wetlands, and thawing of ice-rich permafrost.

Plant species composition, and changes to vegetation composition have cascading effects through the ecosystem, as well as into global hydrologic and atmospheric systems. In response, the Arctic Council's Freshwater Expert Monitoring Group of the Circumpolar Biodiversity Monitoring Program (Conservation of Arctic Flora and Fauna) is developing a framework for monitoring Arctic freshwater biodiversity that will lead to regular reviews of the state of freshwater ecosystems across the circumpolar by: ARCTIC FLORA While it may first appear that the Arctic supports very little vegetation and could be considered a polar desert, there’s actually plant life consistently present throughout the Arctic.

Crustaceous lichens grow on exposed rock surfaces, and algae grows on permanent ice formations. The Circumpolar Arctic Vegetation Map (CAVM) project is an international effort to map the vegetation and associated characteristics of the circumpolar region, using a common base map.

The base map is a false color infrared image created from Advanced Very. The Arctic flora is considered taxonomically, ecologically, biologically and genetically a coherent and distinctive complex of young and dynamic species that occupies a vast natural area characterized by a cold climate.

There is a conservative estimate of algal species reported from the circumpolar Arctic, including both freshwater and. Conservation of Arctic Flora and Fauna.

The Circumpolar Arctic Vegetation Map (CAVM) project is an international effort to map the vegetation and associated characteristics of the circumpolar region, using a common base map.

The map uses a false color infrared image created from Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer (AVHRR) satellite data as the base map. A composite image was created by selecting pixels of maximum reflectance. A major contribution to our initial understanding of the origin, history and biogeography of the present‐day arctic flora was made by Eric Hultén in his landmark book Outline of the History of Arctic and Boreal Biota during the Quarternary Period, published in Here we review recent molecular and fossil evidence that has tested some of Hultén's by: Selling this gorgeous, very good used condition, first edition () copy of Circumpolar Arctic Flora by Nicholas Polunin, published in Oxford at the Clarendon Press.
