TAKE IT FURTHERDeep-Sea Food Web - Exploring a Deep Sea EcosystemYou've learned about how plants on land use energy from the sun to change matter that isn't food into matter that is food, and how that matter moves through a food web. But what happens in placeswhere there is no sunlight? Scientists have discovered that there are organisms in the deepest parts of the ocean that survive without sunlight. Watch this video to learn more.
While scientists may have used submarines in 1977 to explore deep sea vents, you can now see what they saw from your digital device. Select the videos so you can observe the organisms that live around deep sea vents. Then, use what you've discovered to model a food web of this underwater system.
