In this talk I will first review some classical results on the spreading phenomena determined by reaction diffusion equations over the entire N. Then I will report some recent results obtained by the speeker and his collaborators based on these equations over an expanding domain Ω(t), where the free boundary Ω(t) evolves according to the Stefan condition. Comparison of the recent results with the classical ones will be discussed.
