Human impact on the Arctic environment 2002

Year: 2005
From collection: Vital Arctic Graphics
Author: Hugo Ahlenius, UNEP/GRID-Arendal
Description:
Human activities influence the environment and reduce the value of forests, tundra and plains in terms of original biodiversity and habitat. Primarily larger mammals are hit by the fragmentation caused by roads and pipelines. The GLOBIO methdology has modeled the current impact of human activities in the Arctic, as seen in this map. Infrastructure and settlements are used as proxies for human activities.
