Impact of human activities on reindeer habitat - Barents region

Year: 2006
From collection: GLOBIO assorted maps
Author: Philippe Rekacewicz, Julien Rouaud, UNEP/GRID-Arendal
The impact of infrastructure development on reindeer potentially threatens the cultural traditions of the Barents region indigenous people and their chosen way of life. The probability of impact on wildlife, vegetation and ecosystems is related to distance to different types of infrastructure. The distance zones of impact are lowest in forest and highest in open tundra. The extent of the zones are based upon several hundred field studies from international scientific journals. Impacts, modelled using the GLOBIO model, include reduced abundance of wildlife, reduced accessability to important grazing habitat, and changes in predator-prey relationship as a result of infrastructure and associated human activity.
