From Drifter to Dynamo: The Story of Plankton | Deep Look

  • تم نشره في 2015/03/ 3
  • Most plankton are tiny drifters, wandering in a vast ocean. But where wind and currents converge they become part of a grander story … an explosion of vitality that affects all life on Earth, including our own.

    This particular segment made me wonder if we could artificially cause the upwellings to occur. Whether that would be beneficial or not is another ponder I would like to give into.

    @DeepLook I need more plankton. Seriously, their evolutionary origin and history, physiology, their place of phylogeny are all topics I want more on! Also, I just searched youtube a bunch of different ways for other videos and there's basically nothing (other than Spongebob). Considering how incredibly important they are, I would think the subject to be a bit more explored.

    How often does the up welling happen per year? And what seasons do they occur?
    We really need to stat a serious effort of removing the plastic toxins from the oceans.

    so if there are plankton that vary drastically from size and shape, what classifies something as plankton? is it that even though the plankton my vary in size compared to each other they are all microscopic to us and any creature that small in the ocean is considered plankton?
