Ecology

    The general region of indefinite width that extends from the sea inland to the first major change in terrain features.

Additional detail marine algal bloom
  • marine algal bloom
    A marine algal bloom is a rapid increase or accumulation in the population of algae in a marine system. Typically, only one or a small number of phytoplankton species are involved. Although there is no officially recognized threshold level, algae can be considered to be blooming at concentrations of hundreds to thousands of cells per milliliter, depending on the severity.

Environments - EOL project  
Additional detail marine biome
  • marine biome
    An aquatic biome that comprises systems of open-ocean and unprotected coastal habitats, characterized by exposure to wave action, tidal fluctuation, and ocean currents as well as systems that largely resemble these. Water in the marine biome is generally within the salinity range of seawater: 30 to 38 ppt.

Additional detail marine habitat
  • marine habitat
    A habitat that is in or on a sea or ocean containing high concentrations of dissolved salts and other total dissolved solids (typically >35 grams dissolved salts per litre).

Additional detail mediterranean sea biome
  • mediterranean sea biome
    The mediterranean sea biome comprises mostly enclosed seas that have limited exchange of deep water with outer oceans and where the water circulation is dominated by salinity and temperature differences rather than winds.

  • trophic dependence
    Specifies the category of energy source upon which an organism relies for nutritional energy. eg: light, inorganic chemical energy, organic matter, multiple sources.

trophic dependence
Additional detail photoautotrophic
  • photoautotrophic
    Deriving energy from light sources. In practice, taxa containing plastids and photosynthetic pigments, but with no evidence for consumption of organic particles or prey, are considered to be photoautotrophic.
