Life in Extreme Environments

Calls for Papers Collections

The study of life in extreme environments is a highly interdisciplinary subject, which helps further the understanding of the biological and biogeochemical processes taking place in various environments on the Earth generally considered hostile to life. Life in extreme environments tells us about the limits of life, and in turn, about the possibility of life beyond the Earth. PLOS ONE and PLOS Biology are delighted to publish a Collection on the topic of Life in Extreme Environments, bringing together studies from different disciplines such as biosciences, geosciences, planetary sciences, oceanography and related disciplines in order to shed light on this crucial topic, and to present this research to the broad readership of PLOS ONE and PLOS Biology.
