Hidden Biodiversity

A close examination of the community of life within a pond or lake reveals adaptive structures and behaviors that promote survival of any number of species. This series of short videos illuminates the adaptive variations of ciliates, rotifers, water snails, water fleas and mosquitoes. These common creatures, abundant in our world, go mostly unnoticed. Yet, their life cycle and body structures reveal much about the natural world and the delicate balance within it.
