Antarctica is practically defined by ice. What happens when it melts?

(American Institute of Biological Sciences) A single season of intense melting buffeted Antarctica in 2001-2002. It yielded changes that ranged from speeding up microbial food webs to shifting penguin populations. A special section in the October issue of BioScience examines the impacts on two very different Antarctic ecosystems.
