Plankton Ecology

Research in our lab links microscopic organismal behaviors with macroscopic processes that quantify  plankton abundance, distribution and rates of change. The animation on the left shows the swimming track of a single-celled plankton, the photo below right shows the ocean surface and is a reminder of the complex environment plankton inhabit.
