Plankton and Karen are the married owners of the unsuccessful Chum Bucket restaurant. Plankton is an intellectual planktonic copepod and Karen is a waterproof supercomputer.

Plankton shares a rivalry with Mr. Krabs, who owns the far more profitable Krusty Krab restaurant and sells a fictional burger called the Krabby on and Karen often devise schemes to steal the secret Krabby. Plankton, marine and freshwater organisms that, because they are nonmotile or too small or weak to swim against the current, exist in a drifting term plankton is a collective name for all such organisms—including certain algae, bacteria, protozoans, crustaceans, mollusks, and coelenterates, as well as representatives from almost every other phylum of animals.

Whales are graceful and remarkable swimming mammals. The 84 living species are amazingly diverse, ranging from over feet long down to the size of an average dog. Recent research attempted to discover an evolutionary reason for this great diversity in body sizes, but the surprising findings actually support the creation model of whale development.

All species of plankton have adaptations that include flat bodies, lateral spines, oil droplets and floats filled with gas. Other adaptations include sheaths that are made of a gel-like substance and ion replacement. These structural adaptations allow plankton to float in the water column easily without sinking to the bottom.

Most plankton are tiny drifters, wandering in a vast ocean. But where wind and currents converge they become part of a grander story an explosion of vitality that affects all life on Earth. This plank looks like the top of a push-up and requires shoulder stabilization, too. Start on all fours with wrists directly under shoulders, toes on the floor.

The plankton nets used are of various sizes and types. The different nets can broadly be put into two categories, the open type used mainly for hori-zontal and oblique hauls and the closed nets with messengers for collecting vertical samples from desired depths.

Despite minor variations, the plankton net is conical in shape and consists of ring. Coral reefs are some of the most diverse ecosystems in the world. Coral polyps, the animals primarily responsible for building reefs, can take many forms: large reef building colonies, graceful flowing fans, and even small, solitary nds of species of corals have been discovered; some live in warm, shallow, tropical seas and others in the cold, dark depths of the ocean.

Plankton definition is - the passively floating or weakly swimming usually minute animal and plant life of a body of water. How to use plankton in a sentence. A Plankton net is equipment used for collecting samples of plankton in standing bodies of water.

It consists of a towing line and bridles, nylon mesh net, and a cod end. Plankton nets are considered one of the oldest, simplest and inexpensive methods of sampling plankton.

The plankton net can be used for both vertical and horizontal sampling. It allows researchers to analyse plankton both.

Radiocarbon dating (also referred to as carbon dating or carbon dating) is a method for determining the age of an object containing organic material by using the properties of radiocarbon, a radioactive isotope of carbon. The method was developed in the late s at the University of Chicago by Willard Libby, who received the Nobel Prize in Chemistry for his work in Biological Oceanography: An Early Historywas an opening salvo in an attempt to bring the history of oceanography into the written canon of mainstream history of science.¹ With more than twenty years’ hindsight, I can say that its success was before this book was conceived, historians—but more frequently retired scientists, a few professional historians, and a number of amateur.

Derived from the Greek words phyto (plant) and plankton (made to wander or drift), phytoplankton are microscopic organisms that live in watery environments, both salty and fresh.

Some phytoplankton are bacteria, some are protists, and most are single-celled plants. Among the common kinds are cyanobacteria, silica-encased diatoms, dinoflagellates, green algae, and chalk-coated coccolithophores.

I don't know why they do it but they do it a lot - on the title page it says Brick Lane: A Novel And there I was expecting this oblong of printed material to be Brick Lane: A New Kind of Vacuum Cleaner Anyway.

Other reviews would have you believe that this book is terrifically boring, beaten only for tediousness by Some Variations in the Major Groups of Plankton of the Kamchatka Peninsula /5(K).Plankton is a general term for the "floaters," the organisms in the ocean that drift with the currents.

This includes zooplankton (animal plankton), phytoplankton (plankton that is capable of photosynthesis), and bacterioplankton (bacteria).
