Ecoregions prioritised for conservation, in the Arctic (WWF Global 200)

Year: 2006 Author: Hugo Ahlenius, UNEP/GRID-Arendal
Description:
Ecoregions represent large areas with geographically characteristic fauna, flora and climate - both marine and terrestrial. This graphic presents the ecoregion definitions identified by the World Wildlife Fund and associated experts, and specifically those ecoregions that have been designated as priority areas (Global 200 database) for conservation. This means that these ecoregions represent unique biodiversity characteristics, and also that there is a threat from human activities.
