Introduction The world’s polar regions are attracting more public and scientifi c attention than ever before. The Fourth International Polar Year provided a focal point for Arctic and Antarctic scientifi c activity; however, probably of greater signifi - cance are the issues of climate change and increased interest in the energy resources of the Arctic region, which have.   In his latest book Lomborg turns to the impacts of climate change, and says the story of the polar bears 'encapsulates the problems with many of the other scares - once you take a look at the.

Outcome of research by students in the Polar Biology course (MAR ) at the University of New England intended to educate readers about polar regions. The purpose of this book is . The world I was born into has changed forever. For the first ten years of my life, I travelled only by dog team. As the youngest child of four on our family hunting and ice fishing trips, I would be snuggled into warm blankets and fur in a box tied safely on top of the qamutiikqamutiik.

The book contrasts the development of Arctic regions with the protection given to Antarctica under the Antarctic Treaty - but for how long. While the future of polar regions remains uncertain, Barbara James provides examples of positive conservation measures - including treaties to protect polar bears, and fish stocks in the Antarctic, and.

Pages: 18 Published: June (This book is a printed edition of the Special Issue Sustainable Tourism and Natural Resource Conservation in the Polar Regions that was published in Resources). ‘The polar regions are sentinels for biophysical change, changes that are in turn likely to have a range of impacts on geopolitics, human activities, resource use and environmental management.

This book provides a timely and significant assessment of these opportunities and challenges, drawing on insights from experts on the Arctic and Southern Oceans. The polar regions are considered key to our general understanding of climate change.

Inthe first ever (largely symbolic) Joint Ministerial Meeting of the Antarctic Treaty/Arctic Council took place in Washington on 6 April on the occasion of the conclusion of the fourth International Polar Year (–8) and the fiftieth anniversary. Bringing together leading scholars from across a diverse range of disciplines, this unique book examines a key question: How can we best conserve marine living resources in the Polar regions, where climate change effects and human activities are particularly pressing.

of local communities. This special issue explores how tourism development in the Polar Regions is, or can be, managed to enhance the conservation of natural resources, the protection of the environment the wellbeing of peripheral communities and the experiences of visitors.

Tourism in the Polar Regions. The Convention on the Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources (CAMLR Convention) has established world benchmarks for the conduct and management of fisheries. It is often used as an exemplar of fisheries ‘best practice’.

The Convention is part of the Antarctic Treaty System, and is therefore not established under the United Nations Convention. The world’s polar regions are attracting more interest than ever before. Once regarded as barren, inhospitable places where only explorers go, the north and south polar regions have been transformed into high profile tourism destinations, increasingly visited by cruise ships as well as becoming accessible with direct flights.

'The polar regions are sentinels for biophysical change, changes that are in turn likely to have a range of impacts on geopolitics, human activities, resource use and environmental management.

This book provides a timely and significant assessment of these opportunities and challenges, drawing on insights from experts on the Arctic and Southern. This chapter explores whether it is possible to establish a compulsory dispute settlement regime for the conservation of marine living resources in the Polar Regions.

It addresses the adequacy of current regimes to address the future challenges posed by increasing fishing pressure in the Polar Regions. The chapter provides an overview of relevant case law. While this book is about the polar regions, I would say it is more a book on the history of the polar regions than an environmental book.

Obviously, the term "environmental" can mean any number of things, but I took it to be a look at the polar environments through a scientific lens, yet that is nowhere near what the book covers. About Habitats: Polar Regions. Part of About Habitats by Cathryn Sill illustrated by John Sill.

This beginner’s guide explores the major attributes of the Arctic and Antarctic biomes and showcases their striking beauty and remarkable diversity using examples from around the globe.

Since the late 20th century, the geographies of polar regions have been linked by narratives of science and exploration, especially through the recent International Polar Year – But other geographical features besides climate have begun to define each region and to create a distinctive scholarship for each.

This was a sweet read. Since the book is purely about biology, it's descriptive in its entirety. Only the first part, Introduction to the polar regions, contains data that is familiar terrain to a person used to a more exact only stuff like thermal energy and what happens to it (solar radiation, its absorption and reflection), but it also brushes on topics that are "physics of 5/5(1).

Climate change and the need for the conservation of marine biodiversity have brought much attention to the Polar Regions.The Polar Regions also argues that the Polar Regions are strongly linked to the rest of the world, both through physical processes and through intellectual and political themes.

As places of inherent contradiction, the Polar Regions have much to contribute to the way we think about environmental history and the environment more generally.
