Abstract

Summary - Antarctic marine ectotherms look back on several million years of adaptation to constant extreme cold temperatures. By contrast, animals from temperate zones face high summer and below 0°C temperatures in winter. Here, we present recent data on mitochondrial ROS production in animals from both climatic environments, and a concept of mitochondrial proton leak as part of thermal adaptation in both groups.
