Cumulative Environmental Effects of Oil and Gas Activities on Alaska’s North Slope (2003), Board on Environmental Studies and Toxicology and Polar Research Board, examines the positive and negative consequences of oil and gas production including the migration of fish and marine and terrestrial animals.

Geoecology of Antarctic Ice-Free Coastal Landscapes (2002), edited by Beyer and Bölter, describes typical terrestrial environments of the maritime and continental Antarctic focusing on interactions between plants, animals and soils.

Snow Ecology (2001), edited by Jones et al, integrates the study of snow and ice in the physical, chemical and biological sciences into a multidisciplinary overview of life in, on and under snow.

Structure and Function of an Alpine Ecosystem (2001), edited by Bowman and Seastedt, provides a complete overview of an alpine ecosystem, based on the long-term research conducted at the Niwot Ridge LTER.

The Arctic: Environment, People, Policy (2000), by Nuttall and Callaghan, provides a comprehensive overview of the region’s rapidly changing physical and human dimensions.

Ecology of Arctic Environments (1997), edited by Woodin, seeks to further our understanding of how arctic ecosystems function, and to detect and predict anthropogenic changes which may occur within them.
