...Simon Bahrndorff; Jannik M. S. Lauritzen; Mathias H. Sørensen; Natasja K. Noer; Torsten N. Kristensen ABSTRACT Terrestrial arthropods in the Arctic and Antarctic are exposed to extreme and variable temperatures, and climate change is predicted to be especially pronounced in these regions. Available...

... in the Antarctic nematode Panagrolaimus davidi , PhD thesis, University of Otago, 2015). However, trehalose concentrations are still relatively low compared with those found in other cold-tolerant organisms. Panagrolaimus sp. produces an ice active substance with strong recrystallization inhibition activity...

...Arnoldus Schytte Blix ABSTRACT This Review presents a broad overview of adaptations of truly Arctic and Antarctic mammals and birds to the challenges of polar life. The polar environment may be characterized by grisly cold, scarcity of food and darkness in winter, and lush conditions and continuous...

... comparative framework. Clearly gigantism is relative, requiring comparison with other related taxa. In early studies of isopod and tanaid crustaceans, Wolff ( Wolff, 1956a ; Wolff, 1956b ) noted that the largest species within genera occurred in the Antarctic and the deep sea. Arnaud ( Arnaud, 1974...

We parameterized the model by measuring the radius of the artificial masses...

... does the Antarctic scallop, Adamussium colbecki , cope with the cold? Its shell mass is substantially reduced relative to that of temperate and tropical scallops, but this potential advantage is more than offset by a drastic reduction in adductor-muscle mass. By contrast, A. colbecki 's abductin...

... decade, much headway has been made in unravelling the variety of olfactory foraging strategies that Antarctic species employ, and it is becoming clearer that olfaction plays a key role in foraging, particularly for burrow nesting species. Now we are beginning to explore how these behaviours develop...

Marshall SUMMARY The relative importance of freezing tolerance and cryoprotective dehydration in the Antarctic nematode Panagrolaimus davidi has been investigated. If nucleation of the medium is initiated at a high subzero temperature (-1°C), the nematodes...
