It compares two types of reindeer, thae mainland species, Rangifer tarrandus with the Svalbard sub-species, Rangifer ...tarrandus platyhynchus. In so doing it shows how through evolution these very different types of reindeer have adapted to the sub arctic and high arctic environments of Northern Norway and Svalbard respectively.
