At the Academia (Lecture Theatre) within the Intermediatheque, we will be hosting the special talk event “Marine Organisms – Tara Expeditions and the Marvelous World of Planktons”, centered on the unfamiliar world of planktons and its ecology. Based on the marine investigation research conducted by the Tara Expeditions project throughout the world, and in view of Tara’s stopping in Japanese ports in 2016 and 2017, Romain Troublé (Secretary General of Tara Expeditions, supported by agnès b. since 2003) and Christan Sardet (Research Director at the French CNRS, a specialist of planktons who has also been aboard the Tara schooner as a researcher) will give a lecture. Takenori Sasaki (Associate Professor at the University Museum, the University of Tokyo in Taxonomy and Paleontology) will moderate the debate. This special talk co-organized by the University Museum, the University of Tokyo (UMUT) and agnès b. will provide a unique opportunity to learn more about the considerable impact these marine microorganisms have on our global environment.
