DescriptionAn international team of Arctic vegetation scientists have published the Circumpolar Arctic Vegetation Map. The Circumpolar Arctic Vegetation Map (CAVM) project is an international effort to map the vegetation and associated characteristics of the circumpolar region, using a common base map. The maps are available in several formats and resolutions. From a conservation perspective, this (map) is really critical for selecting areas based on vegetation to be set aside as critical areas.
