Surviving in a frozen desert: environmental stress physiology of terrestrial Antarctic arthropods
Journal of Experimental Biology
Abiotic stress is one of the primary constraints limiting the range and success of arthropods, and nowhere is this more apparent than Antarctica. Antarctic arthropods have evolved a suite of adaptations to cope with extremes in temperature and water availability. Here, we review the current state of knowledge regarding the environmental physiology of terrestrial arthropods in Antarctica. To survive low temperatures, mites and Collembola are freeze-intolerant and rely on deep supercooling, indoi:10.1242/jeb.089490 pmid:24353207 fatcat:kc42zf6jhzgdxe24z4akz4eofa
