Abstract

This chapter describes the geographic range, history and distribution of subglacial lakes. The extreme characteristics as well as the predicted diversity and community composition of life in subglacial lakes are discussed. Further, a number of existing studies in subglacial lakes along with the methods employed in the studies, are also presented. Finally, the chapter introduces the potentials of subglacial lake extremophiles in biotechnology.
