Marine life Definition from Society & Culture Dictionaries & Glossaries
Environmental Engineering (English ver.)
Plants and animals of the sea, from the high-tide mark along the shore (also see Shore Life) to the depths of the ocean. These organisms fall into three major groups: (1) Benthos: plants such as kelp and animals such as brittle stars that live on or depend on the bottom; (2) Nekton: swimming animals such as fishes and whales that move independently of water currents; and (3) Plankton: various small to microscopic organisms that are carried along by the currents.
Marine life Definition from Encyclopedia Dictionaries & Glossaries
English Wikipedia - The Free Encyclopedia
Marine biology is the scientific study of organisms in the ocean or other marine bodies of water. Given that in biology many phyla, families and genera have some species that live in the sea and others that live on land, marine biology classifies species based on the environment rather than on taxonomy. Marine biology differs from marine ecology as marine ecology is focused on how organisms interact with each other and the environment, while biology is the study of the organisms themselves.
