A special issue of Acta Societatis Botanicorum Poloniae on “Polar terrestrial ecosystems: ecology, evolution, and biogeography”, co-edited by Michał Ronikier from our Group, is planned for the end of 2018.

The polar research is marked in 2017 by two important anniversaries: 60th Anniversary of the Polish Polar Station in Hornsund, Svalbard, Arctic and 40th Anniversary of the Arctowski Polish Antarctic Station, South Shetland Islands. As meaningful landmarks in the Polish Arctic and Antarctic studies, they served as a motive to launch a special issue of the Acta Societatis Botanicorum Poloniae (the official journal of the Polish Botanical society) focused on accomplishments, advances and perspectives in biological exploration of cold ecosystems.  

This themed issue, published in Open Access, can provide a very nice platform to present an overview of polar biology studies (not limited to botany) and thus we cordially invite contributions (original articles, review articles, and short communications) focused on this subject!
