Call for Papers on Special Issue: Climate Change and Adaptation of Life in the Polar Regions
The prestigious journal Environmental Research (IF 5.026) (ISSN 0013-9351) is currently running a special issue entitled “Climate Change and Adaptation of Life in
the Polar Regions “. As guest editors for this issue, we would like to welcome contributions from various disciplines. We kindly invite you to consider submitting your
full paper to this special issue.
Submission Period: 1st January 2021-30th May 2021
The polar regions are most vulnerable to climate change, as demonstrated by the increase of atmospheric greenhouse gases, which amplify warming in both the Arctic and the
western part of Antarctica. This amplified warming on both poles seems to have a substantial impact on local and remote weather/climate and the respective life forms in the regions, most of which are exposed to significant risks. The rapid change of the polar regions and its impact on life provide a unique opportunity to detect the intensity of climate change and life forms’ adaptations to it. The Asian Forum for Polar Science (AFoPS) is a network focused on enhancing logistics and science collaboration in the polar regions. Numerous projects are conducted within the AFoPS umbrella, including the regular publication of special issues. In order to gather high quality articles on climate change and life adaptation in the polar regions from broad audiences from AFoPS
countries, we would like to propose a special issue with the theme “Climate Change and Adaptation of Life in the Polar Regions.”
This special issue will mainly address the following scientific issues: 1) climate change in the polar regions and its impact on polar and lower latitudes, 2) environment change and environment pollution in the polar regions, 3) biodiversity and life adaption in the polar regions. Authors are also welcome to submit articles presenting their findings in these areas.
To submit your manuscript please go to Environmental Research (at https://www.sciencedirect.com/journal/environmental-research) and follow the procedures for manuscript submission. When prompted for ‘Enter Manuscript Information’ you can select our Special Issue ‘Climate and Life in Poles’.
