Where and what is the Arctic? What animals live there, and where are their habitats? How do they cope with the cold in their austere environment? How can Arctic mammals survive birth when it is 40 degrees below freezing? How can seals dive to a depth of 1000 meters and stay submerged for more than an hour, and how does complete darkness in winter affect the inhabitants of the high Arctic? Arctic Animals answers these questions and also gives an introduction to the Arctic. It is based on the author's 40 years of experience in the Arctic, its environment, and animal life. As this book contains almost 200 illustrations and deals with the entire Arctic animal kingdom, Arctic Animals will be suitable as a textbook for courses in Arctic biology, and also serves specialists in the field.
