Regions used to enumerate Arctic marine mammal species

Regions used to enumerate Arctic marine mammal species

ABA 2013 03 05 MarineMammal 

Arctic Biodiversity Assessment (ABA) 2013.

Figure 3.5. Regions used to enumerate Arctic marine mammal species. High Arctic and low Arctic marine boundaries are shown with solid and dashed lines, respectively. These were used to define areas in Appendix 3.2. We do not include species that only use sub-Arctic waters, except for the seasonally ice covered Sea of Okhotsk, entirely within the sub-Arctic, where several populations of core Arctic marine mammals occur. Note that while populations and species are enumerated within regions, individuals frequently cross several regional boundaries.
