Abstract
Persons invited to attend the Conference on Man's Health in a Changing Arctic Environment included representatives of government, education, industry, professions and the general public. Scientific disciplines involved were public health, biomedicine, the behavioral sciences, engineering, ecology, economics and education. Each person on the list was invited to submit an Issue Paper for purposes of background and discussion in the Conference. The response was gratifying. Thirty papers were submitted, representing a cross-section of interests and viewpoints. A perusal of this variety of material will be most useful--and probably fascinating--to all participants in the Conference. The papers are presented here just as they were received--unedited and retaining the flavor and personal style of each author.
