Para Films’ The Plankton Chronicles

After watching The Secret Life of Plankton, oh how happy we were to find Para FilmsThe Plankton Chronicles. There are so many beautiful videos shot in microscopic detail.

In the video above, the Sea Urchin and its cone shaped echinopluteus larvae demonstrate the cell-division cycle. Other excellent videos in the series include: Protists – Cells in the Sea:

Pelagia – Fearsome Jellyfish:


and Pteropods – Swimming Mollusks:


Stunning film work and breathtaking science. There are more videos at The Plankton Chronicles.
