Ecological Atlas of the Bering, Chukchi, and Beaufort Seas

The Ecological Atlas of the Bering, Chukchi, and Beaufort Seas provides a description of the natural history and ecological relationships in the Arctic marine environment. This comprehensive, trans-boundary atlas contains over 100 maps of Arctic marine mammals, seabirds, sea ice, subsistence, and more. The Atlas is organized into six sections that build, layer by layer, the ecological foundation of the Bering, Chukchi, and Beaufort seas. These sections are:

Physical Setting explores various climatic attributes and the abiotic processes that perpetuate them.
Biological Setting introduces the lower trophic food web.
Fishes describes a range of prominent pelagic and demersal fish species.
Birds highlights a long list of seabirds and waterbirds that regularly use these waters.
Mammals maps out regional use by many cetaceans, pinnipeds, and polar bears.
Human Uses covers subsistence, conservation, and economic drivers in the region.
