42. Peaceful bottom

The 42nd chapter of the “Inhabitants of the microworld” series is called “Peaceful bottom”.

The bottom of the ponds and lagoons is a very special place. It is home to an enormous amount of life-forms that are dedicated, fundamentally, to take advantage of all the organic matter that arrives there. It is, therefore, the place where most of the recycling of matter and energy that is generated in the ecosystem takes place. Annelids, larvae and nymphs of many aquatic insects, water fleas, ostracods … all of them take advantage of the apparent tranquility of these areas to develop most of their vital activity.

This is the 42nd chapter of a series that will bring to us a video per day during this confinement forced by COVID-19.

We hope that you enjoy this initiative, which gives access to a documentary series for free to the world, and you share it with everyone you think will possibly be interested.
