High-Speed Microscope Observations of Feeding Biomechanics in Zooplankton

For planktonic animals living in the oceans one part in 10,000,000 parts of water is food. How does a typical zooplankter separate the food from the water without losing the particle of food?

This project is located at the School of Freshwater Science: 600 E. Greenfield Ave. Milwaukee, WI 53204
