Marine Food Web

This conceptual animation illustrates some of the ecological pathways between species within the marine ecosystem. Single-celled microscopic plants called phytoplankton float in the upper ocean. These photosynthetic plants form the foundation of the marine food web, and nearly all life in the ocean depend upon them for survival, including microscopic zooplankton and whales.    This conceptual animation illustrates some of the ecological pathways between species within the marine ecosystem.
