Abstract
    Since life first appeared in the seas around three billion years ago, it has continued to diversify in order to survive the most extreme habitats. But now, overfishing, the destruction of habitat, pollution, the introduction of invasive species and climate change are damaging marine ecosystems and biodiversity. Researchers from the European network MarBEF (Marine Biodiversity and Ecosystem Functioning) have taken on the ultimate marine research challenge: to discover the numerous life-forms present in the oceans, before they disappear forever.
