The Arctic is a special world. The Arctic Ocean is covered by white sea ice, and its margins are surrounded by bare terrestrial regions, known as tundra. Tundra is a cold and dry environment without trees, but even in the absence of trees, tundra plants such as dwarf shrubs, grasses, herbs and moss support the harsh environment by providing sustenance and shelter.
Arctic Plants of Svalbard introduces the reader to the variety of Arctic tundra, like polar desert, dry tundra, moist tundra, shrub tundra. Further to that it shares unknown wonderful stories of Arctic plants, like species that produce flowers under the soil, and species that have surprising gender imbalance issue. The book also provides insight into how these tiny plants overcome dry coldness and harsh wind in the tundra field.

This book introduces representative arctic plants and their function in Svalbard, revealing the unique tundra ecosystem, and discussing the direct and indirect effects of climate change in the Arctic.
