Plankton Song...Heather Bradley
Are there phytoplankton everywhere? 
By Emily DeBolt, 2005
(in memory of our failed phytoplankton competition experiment)
To the tune of "Do your ears hang low?"

Are there Anabaena everywhere?
Like they don't have a care?
Have they taken over your lake?
Like clowns at a fair?
Are they beating all the other plankton, as they fix all the limiting N?
Are there Anabaena everywhere?

Are there Navicula everywhere?
Where you swim they're in your hair?
But your lake is still clear
So you really don't care?
Are they able to survive, with silica on their side?
Are there Navicula everywhere?

Are there Scenedesmus everywhere?
Does it make people stare?
Zooplankton love them so
Would you eat them for a dare?
Are they all in a group, to avoid being Daphnia soup?
Are there Scenedesmus everywhere?

Onondaga
By Rachel Habig, 2005
To the tune of "O Christmas tree"

On-on-daga, On-on-daga
Why are you so poll-u-ted?
Onondaga, Onondaga
Why are you so polluted?
We filled you up with mercury,
Oh how guilty can we be?
Onondaga, Onondaga, why are you so polluted?

Onondaga, Onondaga
When will you be clean again?
Onondaga, Onondaga
When will you be clean again?
We want to swim, and fish and drink,
But mostly we want to stop the stink.
Onondaga, Onondaga
When will you be clean again?

Und jetzt auf Deutsch:

Onondaga, Onondaga, warum bist du so verschmutzt?
Onondaga, Onondaga, warum bist du so verschmutzt?
Wir haben dir mit Quicksilber aufgefuellt,
Wir fullen uns selber schuld
Onondaga, Onondaga, warum bist du so verschmutzt?

Onondaga, Onondaga, wann wirds du weider sauber sein?
Onondaga, Onondaga, wann wirds du weider sauber sein?
Schwimmen, angeln, trinken wollen wir,
Und das derr Stink kommt nich mehr vons Meer.
Onondaga, Onondaga, wann wirds du weider sauber sein?

Turn, turn, turn (Limnology Style)
By Joshua Conway, 2005
To every seiche, turn, turn, turn
There is a season, turn, turn, turn
And a time to every purpose under water
A time to be born, a time to die
A time to migrate, a time to sleep
A time to eat, a time to meet
A time to defend, a time to leap

To every seiche, turn, turn, turn
There is a season, turn, turn, turn
And a time to every purpose under water
A time to grow, a time to break down
A time to mix, a time to bloom
A time to cast away sediment
A time to gather allochthans together

To every seiche, turn, turn, turn
There is a season, turn, turn, turn
And a time to every purpose under water
A time of input, a time of discharge
A time of turbulence, a time of peace
A time you may be eutrophic
A time you may be oligotrophic

To every seiche, turn, turn, turn
There is a season, turn, turn, turn
And a time to every purpose under water
A time to gain, a time to lose
A time to be warm, a time to be cool
A time to flood, a time to dry
A time to remediate, I swear it's not to late

Plankton Song
By Heather Bradley 2005
To the tune of "It's a small world after all"

Chorus:        There's a small world after all
                    blooms in spring time, die off's in fall
                    Floating in the lake we have a ball
                    We're in a small, small world

Verse           From phyto to rotifers to zooplankton
                    We're diatoms, bluegreens, green and golden
                    There's Ceratium, copepods and Daphnia
                    Chaoborus, Euglena and porifera

Chorus         We're a small world after all
                     Sun is energy for us all
                     Chlorophyll a is in us all
                     We're a small, small, world

Verse            Though small we know how to avoid predators
                      By changing size or shape or reverse migration
                      Our distribution is sometimes cosmopolitan
                      We control populations through competition

Chorus           It's a small world after all
                      It's a small world after all
                      It's a small world after all
                      It's a small, small world!
