'leaving' probably means, in this context, that the iron is no longer cycling in the oceans in any way. iron -> phyto (die) -> sink -> buried? -or- iron -> phyto -> fish -> man Also: 'never mind' is hardly the most grateful response I could have hoped for after typing out that lot...

I'd go with apes. In fact I'd DEFINITELY go with apes. You know weapons manufacturers test new bullets by firing them at large boards of soap because of the similarities to human flesh on impact...
