The INTERACTive e-book takes the reader on a continuing journey through the Arctic and neighbouring alpine and forest areas, and presents the excitement and adventure that a group of researchers both enjoy and endure. The book consists of seven highly illustrated sections focusing on: different ways of knowing, human impacts on Arctic environments, ecosystem services, minimising surprises for society, impacts on local and global societies and ways of working together.
The e-book has been developed to provide wider content for the public, students and school children with videos, animations and activities. These educational resources associated with the Science Stories have neither been produced by the authors of the Stories nor reviewed by them.
The project was created by INTERACT, a circumarctic network of more than 88 terrestrial field bases in Arctic, alpine and neighbouring forest areas. The main objective of INTERACT is to provide a platform for identifying, understanding, predicting and responding to current environmental changes that take place in the Arctic and neighbouring areas.
