What’s in a teaspoon of seawater?

5 March at 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

A talk by Paul Broady: Life in the ocean is dominated by microbes so even in a very small volume there are many different types performing varied functions in complex ecological webs of interaction. The total number of individuals easily surpasses the human population of Christchurch!

Sadly the products of human populations can now also be found i.e. greenhouse gases, complex chemical pollutants and micro-plastics. It is urgent that we prevent their further accumulation as the microbes will be increasingly affected with implications for all larger animals including shrimps, fish, seabirds, whales and us.
