Abstract/Summary

Polar biology is on the threshold of a revolution based on new technologies (e.g. genomics, proteomics), which will greatly enhance our knowledge of polar ecosystems and their biodiversity. The broad biological approach (e.g. physiology, ecology, molecular biology, biochemistry, phylogeny) allows researchers to monitor the impact of changes on polar species, on their adaptation and capacity to cope with ongoing climate changes and survive. In global terms, polar research is advancing at a fast pace, and the contribution by European biologists is very significant.
