Brought to you by Ocean Portal, Life in One Cubic Foot seeks to answer the question: How much life can you find in one cubic foot?

I doubt you’ll be surprised to know that the answer is a lot!

When you arrive at the site you’ll scroll down the page and find a great introduction to the topic (interspersed in the text you’ll find links to other articles about the subject), followed by a video about Life in One Cubic Foot. The video is just under two minutes long and full of interesting information.

The images on the right side of the page show what a biocube looks like, and how scientists use ARMS to learn about the diversity of coral reefs.

Overall, I find this fascinating, and I hope you will too!

Go check it out for yourself today.
