Plankton Planet: Harmed by Humans (52:00)

Plankton fills an essential niche in Earth’s food chain and a vital role in the health of the planetary ecosystem.

This program examines the broad implications of three major concerns: how the inadvertent transfer of invasive plankton species via ship ballast is negatively altering the biodiversity of plankton; how agricultural runoff and other pollutants are affecting plankton populations; and how rising sea temperatures due to global warming are facilitating the proliferation of toxic plankton species.  (52 minutes)
