Pete Davison appeared on KCRW's July 2nd episode of To the Point to discuss the presence of microplastics in the ocean.  Pete explains the expectations and results of a recent study that found less plastic in the ocean than was expected and possible reasons why those plastics weren't detected.  He also discusses the disintegration of plastics into small fragments, the consumption of plastic particles by animals, and toxicity of plastics to organisms.
