Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
Studies on microbes in polar ecosystems are not only scientifically highly relevant but, considering the sensitivity of these high latitudes to increasing global climate change, polar microbiology is also an utterly timely research field. An improved understanding of their diversity and population dynamics, their impact on element cycling, and the specific challenges and stressors polar microbes (bacteria, archaea, eukaryotes, and viruses) experience and have to adapt to, is warranted. This Special Issue will collect original research studies (field, experimental, and theoretical) on all aspects of microbial life in polar ecosystems (inclusive to tundra, ice, freshwater, and marine environments).
