Deep sea ecosystems

Whale pump — nutrient transfer between water elevations

Autogenic ecosystem engineers — creatures that modify the ecosystem with themselves / their own bodies — e.g. corals leave their exoskeletons when they die, offering more substrate for future corals to grow on, creating environments for fish and other creatures while alive too

We’ve been watching a bunch from this series the past couple weeks — the narrator has a soothing voice that’s good for winding down. I studied terrestrial ecology so it’s interesting to see the same concepts applied to ocean ecosystems. And the creatures and colors of the sea are so interesting!

Whale falls may have shaped deep sea ecosystems

Whale bones are extremely lipid rich

Whale falls can sustain life for 100 years!!!

Very cool illustration style – reminds me of scratchboards. I like that her subjects are ambiguous — could be cresting waves of water, could be sinuous ridges of land. She creates so much depth with her dramatic lighting.
