As for ice and aquatic environments, regional climate change impacts on snow melt and its distribution also significantly affects the length of the growing season. Høgda et al. (Chap. 5) have used the NOAA AVHRR GIMMS NDVI satellite dataset for the last two decades, producing maps for Fennoscandia that define the start and end of the growing season.

It is anticipated that marine mammals such as walrus, seals and whales are likely to undergo shifts in range and abundance, while the migration routes of caribou will be disrupted (Nuttall et al. 2005). Such changes could impact upon the hunting, trapping and fishing economies of many small, remote Arctic settlements. Although warming may increase biological production in some wildlife species, the distribution of many species crucial to the livelihoods and well-being of indigenous peoples could change.
