Abstract Provides comprehensive and up-to-date account of how physical and biological environment of Antarctic continent and Southern Ocean has changed from Deep Time until present day, and considers how it may change during 21st century due to increasing concentrations of greenhouse gases. Cross- disciplinary approach reflects importance of Antarctica in global issues such as sea level rise, separation of natural climate variability from anthropogenic influences, food stocks, biodiversity, and carbon uptake by the ocean
