Life in the World Ocean
by Kari Hamende
Life in the World Ocean
The world ocean contains over 97% of the water on or near Earth’s surface. Marine habitats vary from the polar seas to the tropical coral reefs, with living organisms ranging from the microscopic bacterial cells to the great blue whales. 

This lecture will focus on the biodiversity of ocean ecosystems and some of the effects of environmental toxins and other anthropogenic disruptions on these systems.
