How to use plankton in a sentence?

  1. Chris Bowler:

  2. Anastassia Miliou:

  4. Toby Daly-Engel:

  5. Sam Slater:

    Rather than them being victims of these past warming events, our records indicate that the proliferation of plankton contributed to the expansion of marine dead zones -- regions where seafloor oxygen levels were too low for most species to survive, these conditions, with expanding dead zones and plankton blooms, may become more widespread across our globally warming oceans.
