John Priscu is a leading expert on cold climate biology. He has spent many field seasons in Antarctica as part of the Long Term Ecological Research (LTER) Network, a collaborative effort involving more than 1800 scientists and students worldwide, investigating ecological processes over long temporal and broad spatial scales. Antarctica has more than 70 lakes buried thousands of meters below ice. Priscu and his colleagues believe the lakes have liquid water which make them unique habitats for the creatures that likely thrive in them. They believe the lakes should be explored through a cooperative, international effort. Priscu is a Professor of Ecology at Montana State University.
