FEATURE OF THE WEEK  (warning: contains odd polychaetes)

Whale fall 
The fatty bones of dead whales provide rich pickings for creatures 
on the sea floor. In this free news at nature.com feature, Amanda Haag 
meets the scientists who go to extreme and unpleasant lengths to 
study the unique ecosystems on these corpses.
