By the time it has settled down and fallen over its last cascadethe water becomes tranquil and rich with nutrients from its banks. Much sea life is microscopic, and such creatures make up part of the marine plankton. Here, there is only just enough light for the pine trees to survive, but it is extremely cold during the winter. Attenborough demonstrates how even in the most hostile of environments, from the volcanic Furnaces of the Earth to The Frozen World of mountains and tundra, the Arctic and Antarctic, live maintains a foothold.
