Originally published inArctic and Alpine Environments examines, the relatively simple ecosystems of arctic and alpine lands that still occupy extensive areas little disturbed by modern technology. The book argues that there is a necessity for carefully controlled development of the resources of these regions and suggests that there is a risk of irreversible disturbance without full Author: Jack D.

Ives. The climatic environments of the arctic and alpine regions are similar in terms of mean annual temperature and snow cover duration, but little else.

For up to six months of the year the Arctic receives virtually no solar radiation, whereas alpine areas experience regular diurnal and seasonal regimes appropriate to their latitude. Book Description.

Increased temperatures and precipitation, reduction in sea ice and glacier ice, the increased level of UV-radiation and the long-range transported contaminants are challenging new stress factors for both terrestrial and aquatic organisms.

An Arctic–alpine taxon is one whose natural distribution includes the Arctic and more southerly mountain ranges, particularly the Alps.

The presence of identical or similar taxa in both the tundra of the far north, and high mountain ranges much further south is testament to the similar environmental conditions found in the two locations.

Arctic–alpine plants, for instance, must be adapted. Bibliographies. Arctic Institute of North America [AINA] and United States Dept. of Defense. – Arctic al: McGill-Queen's Press.
