Arctic biodiversity under serious threat from climate change according to new report
Date:2/13/2014

i> Uptake of CO2 in sea water is more pronounced in the cold Arctic waters than elsewhere, and the resulting acidification of Arctic seas threaten calcifying organisms and maybe even fisheries.

  • Shipping and resource development corridors are rapidly expanding and may dramatically increase the rate of introduction of alien species.

  • There is an enormous deficit in our knowledge of species richness in many groups of organisms, and monitoring in the Arctic is lagging far behind that in other regions of the world.

  • The multitude of changes in Arctic biodiversity driven by climate and other anthropogenic stressors will have profound effects on the living conditions of peoples in the Arctic.
