Description:

Issues currently affecting the Arctic's environment are highlighted in this important review. After providing a background on the soils and periglacial processes of the Arctic, and the role of microbial and plant communities in ecosystem function, subsequent chapters consider the relationship between individual Arctic species and their environment, particularly in the context of climate and ecosystems. The book concludes with chapters concentrating on man's impacts on the Arctic environment.
