How Do People Adapt to the Arctic?

Answer

People adapt to the Arctic by wearing heavy insulated and layered clothing that covers the whole body thickly in order to maintain the body heat. The modernised dwellers have houses with elaborate heating systems while the natives build igloos heated by seal oil lamps. Food is available from animals adapted to the freezing climate which include fish, seals, caribou and musk oxen.
