The Deep Sea Is A Dynamic Place

"Recent studies have made it clear that the deep sea is a dynamic place, home to complex ecosystems and biological diversity that rival even incredibly rich terrestrial systems, especially when broad genetic categories - phyla - unique to the ocean are balanced against land areas that are "species rich" but "phylum poor."" (Excerpt from the book, Sea Change: A Message of the Oceans, by Sylvia A. Earle, published by Fawcett Columbine, 1995, pg. 156)
