One of the mysteries of the English language finally explained.
Plankton consisting of small animals and the immature stages of larger animals.
- ‘They typically eat insects and floating vegetable matter but their diet also includes zooplankton, aquatic insect larvae, and worms.’
- ‘Young bluegills eat mainly zooplankton, but as they grow older, they become opportunistic and devour almost anything that fits into their mouths.’
- ‘Coleoidea, Crustaceans, nudibranch mollusks and polychaete worms make up a large part of the larger zooplankton.’
- ‘In addition, it might be physically impossible for newly hatched zooplankton to emerge into the water column were they to hatch more than a few millimeters deep in the mud.’
- ‘If preferred prey species are not present at these depths, lake trout may then resort to feeding on zooplankton and invertebrates.’
- ‘When at sea, they eat zooplankton and other small creatures that rise to the surface at convergence zones.’
- ‘These tanks received a continual turn-over of water pumped from Loch Lomond and were therefore rich in zooplankton.’
- ‘The larvae spend several months as floating zooplankton before settling down onto the reef.’
- ‘These species are small-bodied, cold water species that are generalist feeders on planktivorous zooplankton and benthic organisms.’
- ‘According to our results, predation on zooplankton appears to continue beyond larval life stages in the Richibucto Estuary.’
- ‘Oil and gas was formed around 100 million years ago when tiny marine plants and animals called phytoplankton and zooplankton floated on the sea's surface.’
