Johnston1, Eugene J. Murphy1 and Alex D. Rogers2 1 2 British Antarctic Survey, NERC, Cambridge, UK Department of Zoology, University of Oxford, Oxford 1 INTRODUCTION Antarctica offers an unrivalled natural laboratory for fundamental research on the evolutionary processes that shape biological diversity on both local and regional scales. Physiologists and ecologists have long been attracted to environments that lie at the limits of the physical conditions capable of supporting life. This is because the polar regions, the deep-sea, hot springs or hydrothermal vents demand striking adaptations at the molecular, cellular or whole-organism level to allow organisms living there to survive, grow and reproduce.
