This PhD deals with a poorly recognized group of zooplankton - Ostracoda, and its aim is to verify (morphologically and genetically) composition structure, distribution (in the past and today) and the role of these animals in two very different polar ecosystems. The ambition of this project is to verify the concept of bipolarity ("symmetrical" presence of identical or closely related species of zooplankton at the both edges of Earth) based on a wide collection of historical and contemporary taken ostracods samples from the Atlantic sector of Arctic and Antarctic waters. The benefit of the project is an access to valuable zooplankton materials from the Discovery expeditions from the 1920s and 1930s gathered at the Natural History Museum (London) which opens up a wide range of opportunities for PhD internship in one of the most prestigious research centers in the world. This access to archival materials is exceptional opportunity for biological materials because it will allow to trace changes in composition stucture and biogeography of this group over the last 100 years. Furthermore, extensive international cooperation - previously agreed with foreign partners from the leading European oceanographic institutions (the Alfred Wegener Institute, Shirshov Institute of Oceanology of the Russian Academy of Sciences and the Norwegian Polar Institute) - provides a unique opportunity to follow long-term trends in ecology of polar zooplankton, particularly exposed to changes caused by global warming.
