Plankton is involved in at least 50% of human beings oxygen supply. They also influence the weather and they are a substantial food supply for larger marine life, such as whales and fish.

Customer Reviews

Tara Oceans, a collaboration of ecologists, geneticists, biologists, physicians and oceanographers began studying plankton in 2009. Understanding plankton is crucial for monitoring climate change. Plankton include the small animals, viruses, algae, and bacteria that float in the open sea. These organisms serve as a food source for larger organisms in the ocean. Phytoplankton fix about half of the carbon dioxide that is released into the atmosphere, and many have suggested that plankton could help to reduce global warming because of it.
This is a four part series that follows the Tara Ocean scientists as they travel the world sailing and getting samples from pelagic zones in the Indian Ocean, Mediterranean, and the Red Sea.
They begin working on a large comprehensive database of their findings. The series includes candid footage of research in the field as well as incredible macrophotography. This series is a great educational tool for students in several different disciplines and they are fascinating and entertaining. (209 minutes)
