Terrestrial Expert Networks (TENs) are groups of scientists and specialists that include the expertise necessary to assess the status and trends of the Focal Ecosystems Components and attributes identified in the Arctic Terrestrial Biodiversity Monitoring Plan.

Terrestrial Expert Networks are responsible for:

  1. identifying, aggregating, analyzing and reporting on existing datasets to contribute to FEC attribute assessments 
  2. suggesting adjustments to the parameters, attributes and sampling schemes if needed
  3. contribute to domestic reporting manates and needs, improving domestic monitoring coordination

These networks communicate and contribute to the Terrestrial Steering Group, which in turn organizes and coordinates reporting to the Circumpolar Biodiversity Monitoring Program (CBMP) and CAFF.
