The present theoretical understanding of the role of short-range correlations in nuclei near stability is reviewed. Two effects are identified in particular: first, the depletion of mean-field single-particle strength that is no longer available to participate in low-lying excitations. Second, the admixture of high-momentum nucleons in the ground state that is implied by the vanishing relative wave functions of pairs in the medium. The role of the tensor force will be further clarified by discussing isospin-polarized matter. It is demonstrated that the depletion of the proton and neutron Fermi seas depends strongly on the nuclear tensor force and appears to be determined by nucleon-nucleon scattering data. The increased role of short-range and tensor correlations for the minority species makes the case for further experimental scrutiny of nuclei with large neutron excess. Appropriate data of single- and two-nucleon knockout experiments are employed to illustrate the role of short-range and tensor correlations.
