Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Austere and immense, the Arctic region is a fascinating topic for intrepid travelers and stay at home students alike. This new guide in the Pocket Naturalist series covers the variety of flora and fauna that have adapted to this incredible, remote environment with trademark beauty and accuracy.

A truly unique ecosystem, the Arctic remains one of the few areas on Earth with very little human habitation. Many species truly run free in the Arctic and there is a wide variety of vegetation including shrubs, grasses, mosses, sedges and lichens. These plants provide food and cover for a variety of small animals including lemmings, voles and hares which are a critical food source for larger mammals including the Arctic fox. Large mammals unique to the Arctic include the polar bear, musk ox, walrus, caribou (reindeer), bowhead whale and bearded seal.

Tourism to this region has experienced incredible growth in the last decade with more and more people hoping to experience a region only visited by explorers previously. This new Pocket Naturalist Guide will be a must-have for anyone planning to visit the region or anyone hoping to visit in the future.
