Description

This book summarizes Arctic biodiversity knowledge held by researchers of the Circumpolar North, and points out information gaps. The eighteen papers were presented at an international workshop, to launch a new initiative for advancing the study of Arctic Ocean biodiversity within the Census of Marine Life program (CoML). CoML is a major international research program assessing the diversity, distribution, and abundance of marine organisms throughout the world's oceans.

Of the major oceans, the Arctic Ocean is the least studied. In light of recurring global changes, it is urgent that we increase our understanding of the abundance, distribution, and diversity of Arctic organisms. The workshop was held in April 2003 in Fairbanks, Alaska.
