Increased sedimentation from a melting glacier inhibits filter feeders in an Antarctic fjord.
New research that may presage effects of climate change on this species looks back 22,000 years, finding robust growth in the East Antarctic population as melting followed the last ice age.
The next decade of research should focus on the need to understand the changing Antarctic environment and how organisms adapt to it, a high-level report says.

A new method will help scientists monitor the basal melt of ice sheets in Antarctica.
Interspersed layers of debris in some of Antarctica's glaciers give clues to ancient swings in climate.
Supercooled water contributes to sea ice growth in Antarctica.
New techniques are speeding up the slowest-changing landscapes on Earth.
Researchers examined the water flowing into and out of several Antarctic ice streams to determine the cause of a recent observed slowdown of some of these ice streams.
