[From the Preface] This volume contains the proceedings from two workshops that describe progress toward a Circumpolar Arctic Vegetation Map (CAVM). The bulk of the volume is devoted to the Second International CAVM Workshop in Arendal, Norway, 19-24 May 1996. This workshop was attended by representatives from all of the circumpolar nations. Twenty-seven papers described the progress that had been made since the first workshop in St. Petersburg, Russia, in 1994, and the abstracts of those papers are presented here. The second part of this volume contains the results of a North American CAVM workshop held in Anchorage, Alaska, 14-16 January 1997. This workshop was attended by participants from Greenland, Canada, and the US. A summary of the proceedings, and a paper describing a prototype map for northern Alaska are presented. The purpose of these proceedings is to keep the arctic-science and vegetation-science communities appraised of progress and to provide documentation to the membership of the CAVM working group.
