Existence started within the sea, or even this present day many of the deep variety of the planet is marine. this can be forgotten, specifically in tropical international locations like Costa Rica, popular for his or her rain forests and the multitude of lifestyles types discovered therein. hence this e-book targeting marine range of Costa Rica is very welcome. what percentage marine species are there in Costa Rica? The authors document a complete of 6,777 species, or three. five% of the world’s overall. but the majority of marine species have not begun to be officially defined. contemporary estimates of the numbers of species on coral reefs variety from 1–9 million, in order that the real variety of marine species in Costa Rica is definitely some distance better. In a few teams the numbers usually are greatly greater simply because thus far they've been so little studied. just one species of nematode is said, although it's been stated that nematodes are the main varied of all marine teams. In larger studied teams resembling mollusks and crustaceans, mentioned numbers are within the millions, yet even in those teams many species stay to be defined. certainly the duty of describing marine species is daunting – if there rather are approximately nine million marine species and Costa Rica has three. five% of them, then the full quantity will be over 300,000. sincerely, loads is still performed that new techniques are wanted. Genetic equipment have en- mous promise during this regard.
