Dataset specification

  • Title: BioBasis Nuuk - Microarthropods - Microarthropod emergence
  • Description: Soil samples are collected with a soil corer from which the organisms are extracted in a heat extractor by gradually heating up. Samples are taken from permanent plots 3 times during the snow free season. Microorganisms are indentified and counted by specialists in Denmark. For further details, please refer to the newest BioBasis manual available at the website. Microarthropods:Microarthropods BioBasis Nuuk:The BioBasis programme monitors the dynamics of organisms and biological processes in the terrestrial and limnic ecosystems at Zackenberg and Nuuk. The BioBasis programme plays a central role in the development and implementation of the Circumpolar Biodiversity Monitoring Programme (CBMP) across the Arctic.
