Climate change and Arctic ecosystems: 2. Modeling, paleodata‐model comparisons, and future projections
Large variations in the composition, structure, and function of Arctic ecosystems are determined by climatic gradients, especially of growing-season warmth, soil moisture, and snow cover. A unified…
Fifty thousand years of Arctic vegetation and megafaunal diet
The authors' analyses indicate that both graminoids and forbs would have featured in megafaunal diets, and question the predominance of a Late Quaternary graminoid-dominated Arctic mammoth steppe.

Climate change and Arctic ecosystems: 1. Vegetation changes north of 55°N between the last glacial maximum, mid‐Holocene, and present
A unified scheme to assign pollen samples to vegetation types was used to reconstruct vegetation patterns north of 55°N at the last glacial maximum (LGM) and mid-Holocene (6000 years B.P.). The…
The Living Tundra.
This book discusses the role of snow and its role in the life of the tundra, and the diversity of tundRA landscapes, as well as the relationships between organisms and man.
The Arctic and Antarctic: Their Division into Geobotanical Areas
Causes of Arctic Plant Diversity: Origin and Evolution
- D. Murray
- Environmental Science
The term biodiversity was coined rather recently as a shorthand reference to biological diversity, i.e., for the sum of all taxa of plants and animals (Wilson 1988), yet the study of biodiversity is…
Contrasting Patterns of Plant Distribution in Beringia
The Bering Land Bridge has been a major highway for Asian plants into North America, but also a barrier to some and a filter for others. Additionally, there are widely separated and highly local…
Genetic consequences of glacial survival: the late Quaternary history of balsam poplar (Populus balsamifera L.) in North America
The palaeobotanical record supports the presence of a Beringian refugium for balsam poplar, but there is no evidence that known refugial populations from Beringia are not a significant reservoir of cpDNA diversity today.
