I attended a lecture today titled "Understanding Cross-Scale Vulnerability in Lapland Ecosystem Governance" by Janne Hukkinen. It was about stresses on the reindeer herding economy in northern Finland. Logging is bad for the herdsmen because reindeer need to eat lichen growing from old trees in the winter.

The herders use snowmobiles to tend to their reindeer. Otherwise, not much.
