Circumpolar Arctic Vegetation MapEntry ID: ggd639
Abstract: The Circumpolar Arctic Vegetation Map (CAVM) defines the spatial extent of dominant vegetation in terms of the dominant plant growth forms and physiognomy. Mapped vegetation extends south to the treeline, which varies with longitude. Spatial coverage is 60 to 90 N, -180 to 180 W. The map is available in Adobe PDF format, ESRI Arc/Info and Shapefile format, among others.
