Want to learn about Arctic Biology?

posted June 2018

Imagine standing on a small hill, looking over a vast strech of Arctic tundra with the cold wind on your face and wondering: What kind of organisms can I find here? How do they manage to live in this cold, harsh environment?

Throughout the pages of this open electronic learning portal, we try to answer such questions as good as we can with todays knowledge. It provides material and information, including links to further reading, about Arctic ecosystems and organisms living within the Arctic.

The material was prepared or reviewed by scientists working in the Arctic within the respective fields, and we hope it can be a resource for both students and teachers who learn and teach Arctic Biology at University, but also for high school teachers and pupils, Arctic nature guides and others.
