  • Sea Links. The Planktonic Marine Food Web

    Foster, Graham; Hall, Julie (National Institute of Water and Atmopheric Research (NIWA), 2001)
    "Sea Links" is designed to be used as a supplementary resource to support the teaching and learning of Science and Biology at Level 7 (Year 12). This resource also complements the "Sea and Learn" programme resources. The planktonic (ocean's water column and the organisms within it) food web is the resource's focus of study. It is intended for use with students at Years 11, 12 and 13, though it may be appropriate at other levels too. As they study the marine ecosystem, they will be rewarded by a number of surprises, including the variety of animals, and the unexpected direction of the energy flow that may occur when nutrient levels are low.
