"Tiny giants of climate change"
Microscopic organisms known as plankton represent the majority of life in the ocean.
These tiny plants and animals form the base of the marine food web and play critical
roles in supporting healthy ocean ecosystems and modulating the Earth’s climate. Presenter Dr. Benjamin Twining will show stunning images of these remarkable microbes while discussing plankton’s vital roles and the significant changes that are occurring as humans alter Earth’s
climate. He will also introduce guests to Bigelow Laboratory for Ocean Sciences, a
nonprofit research institute in East Boothbay, Maine, that focuses on these Tiny Giants
and the fascinating world of microscopic sea life.
