Thus, a book about the ecology of Greenland is also about arctic ecology in general, descibing how special conditions such as cold and winter darkness affect human beings, animals and plants.
The seven major chapters are:
1. Some Basic Ecological Concepts
2. Floral and Faunal History
3. The Climate
4. Adaptations to Arctic Conditions
5. The Ocean
6. Land Fresh Water
7. Man and Nature
