This scientific initiative with an interdisciplinary team addressed fragility, resilience and adaptation of high-latitude communities and ecosystems to the effects of climate change. It investigated ecological and societal impacts of climate changes through studies of biodiversity and ecosystem functioning.
It was underpinned by new analysis of past, present and future climate changes across the high latitudes of the northern hemisphere.
