Marine Biology is the study of living resources in the world's oceans and coastal seas. Throughout the world, shallow salt water environments support diverse biological communities. These include coral reefs, mangrove and sea grass habitats. Studying Marine Biology is essential to understanding these diverse assemblages of plants and animals and their relationships. Also, Marine Biology studies and evaluates human influence on marine ecosystems.
