Melting glaciers could create new ecosystems covering an area between the size of Nepal and Finland by the year 2100, researchers said.

Glacial area outside the Antarctic and Greenland ice sheets could be halved because of human-caused climate change under a high-emissions scenario, they said in a study published in the journal Nature.

This glacial melting could cause a rapid ecological shift as novel ecosystems develop to fill emerging new habitat, they wrote.
