Protected areas in the terrestrial priority ecoregions in the Arctic
Hugo Ahlenius, UNEP/GRID-Arendal
Certain areas have been identified as priority ecoregions for conservation (WWF Global 200) due to their unique biodiversity characteristics. Significant parts of these regions are without any protection, as identified by the IUCN classifications. Protection is currently best in Arctic Russia.
