From Darwin to the Census of Marine Life: Marine Biology as Big Science

From Darwin to the Census of Marine Life: Marine Biology as Big Science | marine biology | Scoop.it
PLOS ONE: an inclusive, peer-reviewed, open-access resource from the PUBLIC LIBRARY OF SCIENCE. Reports of well-performed scientific studies from all disciplines freely available to the whole world.
Ben Hanlon's insight:

Ocean covers over 70 percent of our planet and the ocean is still very mysterious to us.  great discoverers like darwin, columbus, and aristotle were some of the first to start mapping the ocean.  scientists today have done so much to learn about the ocean. we know more now than ever and in 20 years we will know twice as much if our progress continues.

Welcome to MarineBio!

Welcome to MarineBio! | marine biology | Scoop.it
MarineBio is a nonprofit organization staffed by volunteer marine biologists, students, professors, and conservation advocates working to share the wonders of the ocean realm inspiring marine science education, research, and a sea ethic.
Ben Hanlon's insight:

The future of marine biology is all about finding new ways to help restore the ocean to the way it was before human interaction was a factor.  new technology is being used to clean the ocean and learn more about it.  Marine biologists are finding new species regularly and the future is bright for marine biology.

Ben Hanlon's insight:

Aristotle is considered to be the first marine biologist, colombus beagle and darwin followed with many discoveries and theories. this website shows how they build off of eachother and were able to use eachthers works to formulate more and more information about the ocean.

Becoming a Marine Biologist

Ben Hanlon's insight:

If you think marine biology is about training dolphins and whales you should not pursue it because that is the opposite of what marine biology is about.  go to your local body of water and explore all of the creatures and objects under the water. if this excites you then marine biology is for you.
