This volume contains the edited proceedings of a scientific meeting at Uppdal, Norway in August 1993. It was the first major international conference on Arctic terrestrial ecology since the Abisko IBP conference of 1974. The overriding objectives were to increase understanding of Arctic systems, to allow better predictions of rates and directions of changes to be made, and to provide policy-makers with up-to-date information. The conference had three major components and instruments of dissemination of information: a series of invited, keynote papers, a series of workshops to identify priority areas of research which have been published as workshop recommendations by the Norwegian Institute for Nature Research (NINA), and a series of short, but detailed, project orientated papers and expanded posters contributed to the conference. This latter series of contributions forms the basis of this present volume. Access to details of current Russian research in the Siberian Arctic is a particularly useful product of this volume.
