By compiling available information, this report provides an important first step to identify knowledge gaps in circumpolar biodiversity monitoring efforts. Current biodiversity monitoring is not sufficient to describe the status and trends for many of the Focal Ecosystem Components (FEC): sea ice biota, plankton, benthos, fishes, seabirds and marine mammals. Snapshots of the state of knowledge and trends for each FEC are provided.
