A new article is up! Read it here: Plankton - What Do You Know About Plankton?

"Plankton, occupying the lowest levels of the food chain, are enormously important in supporting life on this planet. Different types of plankton serve as the initial prey for all fish larvae, food for whales, and as an important part in the ocean's carbon cycle."

Read the article and then come on back here to discuss it!

As i know planktons are basically two types, first one are getting their food from the plants hence called as Phytoplankton. And the other one are getting the food from the animals so called as Zooplanktons. Am i right Deborah.

Phytoplankton convert solar energy into chemical energy. Basically, Phytoplankon are plants.

On the other hand, Zooplankton are animals. They generally feed on the Phytoplankton!
