Do you know what the paradox of the plankton is? In aquatic biology, the paradox of the plankton describes the situation in which a limited range of resources supports an unexpectedly wide range of plankton species. This theory apparently disregards the competitive exclusion principle. It holds that when two species compete for the same resource, one will be driven to extinction. Similarly, this exhibition is driven not by a single concept but by various interests, beliefs, fields, vectors, and more.
