Arctic Species Trend Index (ASTI)

The Arctic Species Trend Index (ASTI) is an index that tracks trends in over 300 Arctic vertebrate species.

The ASTI describes overall trends across species, taxonomy, ecosystems, regions and other categories. Learn more about the ASTI, including key findings and facts, trends and sample populations, and explore the Circumpolar Biodiversity Monitoring Program, that commissioned the ASTI in cooperation with the Zoological Society of London, World Wildlife Fund, and the United Nations Environment Program World Conservation Monitoring Centre.

Linguistics

Language not only communicates, it defines culture, nature, history, humanity, and ancestry. The indigenous languages of the Arctic have been formed and shaped in close contact with their environment. They are a valuable source of information and a wealth of knowledge on human interactions with nature is encoded in these languages. If a language is lost, a world is lost. This deep knowledge and interconnectedness is expressed in Arctic song, subsistence practices, and other cultural expressions but especially in place names across the Arctic. Place names of the indigenous peoples reflect subsistence practices, stories, dwelling sites, spawning sites, migratory routes of animals, and links to the sacred realms of the indigenous peoples of the north.
