The polar regions are places of wonder and provide homes for many iconic species as well as providing important food sources for a wide range of organisms. Fast and large scale changes are affecting Arctic communities who are experiencing societal and economic pressures as well as environmental changes. Shrinking sea-ice and changes in climate and weather systems are having a dramatic effect on the flora and fauna of the polar regions.
As more research programmes and investigations are centred on the polar regions, Springer is launching a dedicated Polar Platform to showcase the wealth of reference work articles, books and journal publications related to the interdisciplinary field of polar science studies. The page provides a window into Springer’s extensive publications in Polar Sciences.

Springer’s publications in Polar Science align with Springer Nature’s wider goal of highlighting the best research that can advance our understanding of how to maintain sustainable life on the Earth through climate change research. The commitment to climate change research is part of the Springer Nature Grand Challenges programme, which aims to deliver the most rigorous research to all who are in a position to take action to solve the urgent global challenges that face us as a society.
