Darwin200 Episode 13: Systematic plankton studies

The team of Darwin200 young scientists undertake a series of systematic studies of plankton in UK waters.

Even though plankton are tiny, their impact is immense. Not just in terms of producing oxygen and absorbing carbon dioxide, but as the basis of much of the world’s marine ecosystem.

The young scientists studied the intricate and complex shapes of the plankton to identify which groups were present at each location that was surveyed.
