Arctic Terrestrial Biodiversity Monitoring Plan

The CBMP Terrestrial Expert Monitoring Group (CBMP-TEMG) has developed the Arctic Terrestrial Biodiversity Monitoring Plan (CBMP-Terrestrial Plan/the Plan) as the framework for coordinated, long-term Arctic terrestrial biodiversity monitoring. The goal of the CBMP-Terrestrial Plan is to improve the collective ability of Arctic traditional knowledge (TK) holders, northern communities, and scientists to detect, understand and report on long-term change in Arctic terrestrial ecosystems and biodiversity.

The CBMP-Terrestrial Plan aims to address these priority management questions:

  1. What are the status, distribution, and conditions of terrestrial focal species, populations, communities, and landscapes/ecosystems and key processes/functions occurring in the Arctic?
  2. How and where are these terrestrial focal species, populations, communities, and landscapes/ecosystems and key processes/functions changing?
  3. What and how are the primary environmental and anthropogenic drivers influencing changes in biodiversity and ecosystem function?
  4. Where are the areas of high ecological importance including, for example, resilient and vulnerable areas (related to the FECs) and where are drivers having the greatest impact?
