February Social: The Secret Lives of Plankton
By OceanFirst on 2/2/17
It's a tough being at the bottom of the food chain but someone has to do it. Join us for an evening with Jessica Luo, PhD, who will be subbing for previously scheduled speaker Cheryl Harrison. Dr. Luo is a marine ecologist and biological oceanographer who has spent her career studying zooplankton imaging and modeling.
From the smallest fish to the largest whale, the entire oceanic food web depends on plankton. These little guys spend their lives just going with the flow, traveling with the ocean currents. Their distribution plays an important role in both the health of the food chain and the global carbon cycle. Not to be dramatic, but the fate of our lives depends on organisms that are smaller than a grain of sand. Join us to learn more about the fascinating, diverse, and sometimes bizarre undersea world of plankton.
