  • How have plankton shaped life on Earth? What role do they play in our lives? This resource explains how plankton underpins the marine food web, created our oil and gas, and shaped the landscape around us. Plankton contribute to the global carbon cycle, creating 50% of the oxygen in the air we breathe. Rising sea temperatures due to climate change are altering the abundance, distribution, and seasonality of these remarkable creatures with ramifications for the ecology of the planet.
