Includes sections on past and present climate; nutrients and fertilization of coastal ecosystem; flora; fauna; hydrography; trophochemoreception; human impacts; conservation and management; and functioning of geoecosystem. Articles contribute to research topics for International Polar Year 2007-08, with particular relevance to determination of present environmental status of polar regions by quantifying their spatial and temporal variability; and quantification and understanding of past and present environmental and human change in polar regions in order to improve reliability and quality of predictions.
