Correlation with depth

  • scopedriver by scopedriver

    I know one can't generalize from a single event, but Is the number of plankton and/or number of species inversely related to the depth in general? I found 10 or 11 individuals in this frame, the most in my experience so far, and it's a little over a meter depth.

    yes, as far as i know, plankton is the most abundant in surface water. but i think it also differs from species to species.
