What is a plankton and what are some examples of plankton?
Plankton are very small organisms that live in the world's oceans. There are two main categories of plankton; phytoplankton and zooplankton. Phytoplankton are small plants that cause the color of the oceans in some places to be green. They also make up the largest single biomass in the world. Zooplankton are small animals that eat phytoplankton.

Plankton refers to any seabound organism that can't swim against the current, drifters. Phytoplankton Phytoplankton are minute (extremely small) plants that float on th…e surface or in the sunlight zone. They live up here because they use the sun to get energy. This proces known as photosynthesis, uses sunlight along with carbon and water to produce starches and release energy and oxygen. Phytoplankton support life on Earth via this function. Phytoplankton reproduce asexually: the organism splits in half and produces a new copy of itself. Phytoplankton are consumed by a wide range of sea animals, notably by zooplankton, after they die and float downward. Zooplankton Meaning 'animal', the prefix zoo denotes a group of animal plankton. Likewise, they cannot swim themselves. These animals are detrivores and omnivores. They eat each other, phytoplankton, and decaying matter. Plankton consists of any drifting organism, such as animals, plants or bacteria. They inhabit the pelagic zone of oceans, seas, or any other bodies of fresh water. See related link below.. These are microscopic organisms, similar to phytoplankton, who consume other plankton and digest waste. Some look like microscopic shrimp and others may look like tiny floating insects, depending on the type. Plankton are microscopic organisms that live in water. They consistof small crustaceans,protozoans and diatoms.
Many animals, including whales, would have problems adapting. Also, the oxygen produced by the photosynthesis of some plankton would have extremem affects on the atmosphere.
Answer . You can get it in ponds, lakes and the sea, using a very fine net.
tiny/small under sea creatures that eat everything, including other planktons! they usually have one eye
From a local beach.
by using a very fine net! *ride a speedboat. *put the net UNDERwater. *wait Go to a lake BEFORE you do these stuff
Phytoplankton and zoo plankton are examples of plankton
Plankton are mostly tiny animal and plant organisms that float or weakly swim in the ocean's surface waters. Some plankton are single-celled while others are multi-celled---wi…th some forming colonies. The word plankton comes from the Greek planktos, meaning drifting or wandering. The organisms that make up plankton are very numerous and diverse; they can be grouped in many different ways. One division is based on the ability for photosynthesis; those plankton (mostly algae) that are capable of this process are called phytoplankton. Non-photosynthesizing (often termed animal) plankton are called zooplankton. The divisions of plankton are not made based on plant or animal characteristics---because some plankton can exhibit traits of both plants and animals.
whales eat planktons
Plankton, otherwise known as Planktus Seaus, have many interesting behavioral adaptions. These include darkness reception, ie making dem go crazeeee, cutting off their legs wh…en they don't have enough room and eating other whales.
Plankton is grouped organisms that are sometimes castoffs fromother creatures in the sea. They are also tiny bugs and fish andbacteria that cannot swim. Whales eat plankton by… taking in water.
they can be small Ike bacteria..medium like shrimp..or large like jellyfish.
plankton are a type of fish and a shark's favorite snack.
