Abstract

The outline of vertebrates is mostly based on year-round investigations from 1959 onwards in the Finse area, which is situated in the north-western part of the Hardangervidda plateau (Østbye et al., 1972a; Sonesson et al., 1975). The material is supplemented with data from investigations and scattered observations from the whole mountain plateau (references cited in Østbye et al., 1972c; Østbye et al., 1975).
