Résumé : Seen from the sky, the earth is blue, the colour of the sea. But what do we actually know about the oceans of our planet? What exactly lives in the oceans? To answer these questions, a team of scientists set sail aboard the schooner Tara. Their voyage is an investigation into a secret realm…the world of plankton, largely unknown, but comprising millions of different species. One thing is certain: we know these marine organisms play a major role in the life of our planet.
