Research on biodiversity

The Norwegian Polar Institute research on biological diversity aims to obtain data which can form a basis for wise management of the polar regions and enhance our general knowledge about the flora and fauna of the Arctic and Antarctic. Our scientists are engaged on projects concerning arctic foxes, Svalbard reindeer, Svalbard ptarmigan, polar bears and a wide variety of seals, whales and seabirds in Arctic and Antarctic waters. At present, many of the research projects have to do with the potential consequences of climate change.
