dc.description A Symposium presented as part of the 23rd AAAS Alaska Science Conference at the University of Alaska, Fairbanks, Alaska. Brent H. McCown and Donval R. Simpson Coordinators en_US
dc.description.abstract Research efforts have yielded valuable data and insights about adaptive mechanisms for survival in cold-dominated environments and also will contribute to practical solutions to some of Alaska's pressing environmental problems. By gathering these projects together in one place, it is hoped that these proceedings will provide both a good summary of the progress as well as pinpoint the critical problem areas that demand further study. en_US
