Antarctic Ecosystem

Our guest speaker was a PhD scientist who performed her research on an icebreaker just off the shores of Antarctica. She studied single cell organisms called phytoplankton which are small but at the bottom of the food chain so all life above it (fish, birds, penguins,seals etc) are dependent on them. To learn more about what she studied and why, click on the photos.
