In 2008 the United Nations Environment Program passed a resolution expressing ‘extreme concern’ over the impacts of climate change on Arctic indigenous people, other communities, and biodiversity. They highlighted the potentially significant consequences of changes in the Arctic. The Arctic Biodiversity Trends - 2010: selected indicators of change report provides evidence that some of those anticipated impacts on Arctic biodiversity already are occurring. And that although climate change is a pervasive stressor, multiple stressors, such as long range transport of contaminants, harvesting and resource development are also impacting Arctic biodiversity. These key messages include a selection of indicators but not a complete overview.
