Group: Summary

   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.
