About this book

The Ecosystem of Kongsfjorden, Svalbard focuses in detail on all ecologically important aspects of the Kongsfjorden system such as the marine and atmospheric environment including long-term monitoring, Ecophysiology of individual species, structure and function of the ecosystem, ecological processes and biological communities. The contributed articles include review articles and research articles that have a wider approach and bring the current research up-to-date. The Ecosystem of Kongsfjorden, Svalbard will form a baseline for future work.
