Marine Biome 3



CLIMATE AND LOCATION
  • The marine biome is the largest of all the biomes. It covers three fourths of the earth.
  • When it comes to the marine biome, climate doesn't really effect it much. It is warmer as you get closer to the equator and it is colder as you get closer to the poles. Even though the climate doesn't effect the marine biome, the marine effects the mainlands climate a lot. Its currents affect all the coastal areas. Another way the marine affects the coastal areas are the winds, depending upon the temperature of the water, the winds usually match that temperature.


PLANTS
  • Kelp is a plant that grows in the ocean. Its leaves are great brown blades that grow up to 50 feet long and can grow to more than 100 feet long below the surface of the ocean. Laminderia is another type of kelp found along rocky shores. It can grow 15-20 feet long, but it is usally much smaller.
  • Kelp houses a variety of sea creatures including tiny barnicles and inch wide sea-anemonies. These animals cling to the steam of the kelp plant near the ocean floor at the bottom of the kelp . At the base of the kelp forest are sponges, red and yellow starfish, muscles and clams.

ANIMALS
  • The marine biome covers three fourths of the earth and there are hundreds of different fish to cover each square foot of it. The main kinds of animals in the sea are whales, dolphins, sharks, and seals which are some of the most popular kinds of sea mammals. Other kinds of animals and fish that live in the sea are the walrus, star fish, eel, crabs, jelly fish, and fresh and salt water fish, but this is just a small list compared to the many different kinds of fish that inhabit the marine biome. In general these fish have about five different adaptations. These adaptations include sleek bodies to cut down on friction when swimming through the water, gills to allow them to breath underwater, eyes on the sides of their heads so they can see enemies coming, fins to help them swim faster, and they have color coded skin to help them hide from their enemies. Most of the small fish are herbivores and the larger ones are carnivores.

The climate of the Marine biome varies. The closer you get to the equator, the hotter the climate will get. Similarly, the deeper you go, the colder it will get because the sun's rays cannot penetrate deep into the ocean.
The marine regions are divided between coral reefs, estuaries, and oceans. Oceans represent the largest and most diverse of the ecosystems salt water evaporates and turns to rain which falls on the land regions, while most of the oxygen in our atmosphere is generated by algae. Algae is also responsible for the absorption of large amounts of carbon dioxide from our atmosphere.the ocean is divided up into three vertical zones. The top layer is called the euphotic zone and it is the area of the ocean where light can penetrate. The next layer is the disphotic zone.


The constant motion of the ocean results in currents and waves that may either be warm or cold depending on the weather and temperature of that area. Temperatures in the ocean range from just around freezing at the pole and in the deep waters, to tropical clear waters that are as warm as a bathtub.One type of marine algae is kelp. Kelp is important because it provides shelter and food for a lot of sea creatures. Kelp is also used by humans for many products, including toothpaste and ice cream. Kelp also serves as a buffer by absorbing energy from waves before the waves hit the shoreline, protecting many of the sandy beaches along the California coast.The Earth's oceans are home to most of the planet’s biodiversity. Here we can find mollusks, fish, whales, crustaceans, bacteria, fungi, sea anemones and many other animals.Animals have to deal with unique living situations in all zones of the ocean. The ocean is a salty place that is often cold. Many animals have special adaptations to handle this difficult environment.
