Robert Burton will describe Arctic conditions and how the animals and plants of the High Arctic have to condense their annual cycle of growth and breeding into a short summer. The scenery is transformed during three months of the year when temperatures rise, the snow disappears and a surprising variety of plants bloom, swarms of insects appear and migrant birds return to nest.
