Abstract

Currently, the International Tundra Experiment, ITEX, is a collaborative effort involving scientists from more than 11 countries, including all the Arctic nations, and involves research teams at more than two dozen circumpolar and alpine tundra sites. After a successful decade where the focus has been on plants and plant communities, initiatives are now being encouraged within the network to consider other trophic levels and landscape diversity as a next step towards a better understanding of terrestrial ecosystem responses to climate change. From this perspective, participation in the Circumpolar Biodiversity Monitoring Program of CAFF (Conservation of Arctic Flora and Fauna Working Group of the Arctic Council), would match well with future long-term goals of ITEX.
