About this book

The latest discoveries in Antarctica's evolutionary biology ranging from single genes to entire ecosystems are described eloquently in this volume. A continent uniquely isolated for the last 180 million years where organisms have been forced to adapt to life at low temperatures is a perfect natural laboratory for investigating evolution in natural populations. The authors reveal how Antarctic organisms living in this extreme environment - currently at the front line of rapid climate change - provide early insights into the effects of climate change to help interpret and predict the impacts of global warming on more complex ecosystems world-wide.
