Global plankton samples

Abundance per unit volume of the water column

This image illustrates the distribution of plankton data collected from water bottle samples around the world. It is only a sub-set of the total amount of biological data we hold. Data were collected as part of numerous scientific projects.

Most of these data are unrestricted and are available from BODC on request. Please contact our Enquiries Officer.
