About this book

In general, the impacts of Global Change on animals has received less attention than the corresponding impacts on plants, vegetation and ecosystem functioning. This volume includes presentations and conclusions from the ARTERI workshop "Europe's cold regions: scenarios for animal responses to global change", held in Abisko, Sweden, in April 1998. The volume also includes presentations describing animal interactions between the cold areas of Europe and other parts of Europe and circumpolar north.
