Unknown Ocean: The Baseline Report of the Census of Marine Life Research Program, 2003
Ronald K. DíOr (au); J. Frederick Grassle (fr)
With several species of fish being discovered weekly and countless marine organisms still unknown, assaying reports of trouble in the oceans requires a global Census of Marine Life (CoML). After three years of initial explorations, CoML here draws a baseline for exploration to 2010. The census divides itself into three tasks. History, like the 400-year record of fish catches assembled for Denmark, tells what lived in the ocean. Exploration, like the submarine discovery of sponge gardens nearly 4 km deep in a gap in the Mid-Atlantic Ridge, tells what lives in the ocean now. Only combining historical trends with what lives now can one answer the core question of what will live in the ocean tomorrow. Full-color illustrations.
