"The Arctic has profound significance for climate and functioning of ecosystems around the globe. The region is particularly vulnerable to rapid change. Increasing air and ocean temperatures, thawing permafrost, loss of sea ice, and shifts in ecosystems are evidence of ongoing widespread and dramatic change.
