The time period "zooplankton" describes the group of floating, frequently microscopic, animals that inhabit aquatic environments. Being close to the bottom of the meals chain, they function meals for greater animals, equivalent to fish. The ICES (International Council for the Exploration of the ocean) Zooplankton method guide offers entire assurance of contemporary options in zooplankton ecology written by means of a gaggle of foreign specialists.
