Scientists from Bigelow Laboratory for Ocean Sciences and the New England Aquarium will present the collection of images, called "Tiny Giants: Marine microbes revealed on a grand scale," at District Hall in Boston on Jan.
Tiny bubbles ... These pink bubbles are live planktonic foraminifera taken from the Sargasso Sea in the North Atlantic Ocean. Each set of bubbles is a single-celled creature that has built itself a protective, multichambered house called a test.
A group of international researchers has compiled the first atlas of marine plankton, a giant step toward the creation of a comprehensive inventory of marine biota as well as enabling researchers to gain a better understanding of marine biodiversity.
