Plankton from Marseille among the "Pictures of the day"

dimanche 2 juin

Plankton is made of so many beautifull little creatures. If you want to see some of them as pictured by the Cytosense automated flow cytometer, you may visit this Cytobuoy’s link : https://www.instagram.com/cytobuoy/

Among the pictures, you’ll find a lot coming from an experiment run last year in Marseille. Most of the people are not aware yet of this invisible biodiversity which is so close. Tiny insignificant little creatures, but so important for the ecosystem. For instance, phytoplankton is responsible for half of the free oxygen we breathe. Amazing, isn’t it ?
