This book describes the structure and function of life and the environment in polar tundra and tundra-like terrestrial alpine ecosystems in various parts of the world. Polar and alpine tundra have many similarities, but also differences. Particularly when moving towards the equator, high mountains show strong differences from polar regions. However, the similarities justify the presentation of polar and alpine tundra in the same volume. This volume is unique in its comprehensive coverage on all aspects of polar and alpine tundra. The extensive Russian chapters contain information previously not available in the west.
