Special Issue Information
Diversity is one of the main challenging topics feeding scientific discussions on the different life strategies that living organisms evolved to survive in a given ecosystem. Particularly, when colonization and survival are driven by strong selective pressures, species diversity is one of the parameters mirroring the resistance vs. resilience of living organisms in such environments characterized by extreme life conditions.
Environments with extreme life conditions are usually called extreme environments, and they not only include evident highly extreme conditions, such as life on Mars or Antarctica, but also a city, tundra ecosystem, agricultural landscape, or even road roundabout, gut microbiota, and green roofs, which are also extreme environments.
The Special Issue "Diversity in Extreme Environments" aims to provide an ideal arena for hosting and discussing the scientific results of research conducted in extreme environments at different scales of biological complexity, both at the molecular, organismic, and biological community level; in this context, submissions, including reviews and original basic or applied research, are welcome.
Prof. Dr. Roberto Pizzolotto
