Science Made Public at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution

Life Beneath the Ice: How tiny ocean "bugs" fuel Arctic Ocean ecosystems Zhixuan Feng, Postdoctoral Investigator, Biology The Arctic Ocean is harsh, but it is also a hotspot of biological productivity and diversity. This is largely thanks to tiny zooplankton that live in and under sea ice, where they consume primary producers (mainly phytoplankton) and are eaten by larger animals, including fishes and whales. Today, the Arctic is warming at an unprecedented rater. Learn how zooplankton may fare in a changing climate and who the winners and losers will be in this new “normal” Arctic.
