    Dear Colleagues
    Climate change is expected to have both positive and negative impacts on agriculture. One effect is the accessibility of agriculture to new regions. We argue that sustainable management of a rapidly changing boreal and arctic agriculture is best served by a focused, joint, collaborative, and interdisciplinary outlook to research.  
    To this end we drafted the linked survey, which asks for your professional input on the need, value and possible future steps for pursuing a boreal and arctic agricultural research network. Your feedback is greatly appreciated. The value of the survey is truly enhanced by a wide, interdisciplinary participation. Therefore, please forward this letter of request and the embedded link to the survey to person or persons that are in the best position to offer their input on boreal and arctic agricultural research, from the point of view of any relevant discipline.
    If you are an expert in this field, please consider completing this survey. The researchers are hoping to hear responses by January 18, 2019.
    Thank you for your time!
