Figure 16.3 (a) The temporal and spatial scaling of processes that structure the open oceans, and (b) the scaling of the principal mixing processes in the epipelagic ecosystem (after E.T. Dcgens, Perspectives on Bivgeochemistry Springer, 1989). Each "wave" operates at a different scale, creating a continuum of physical disturbances. Larger oceanic currents such as the Gulf Stream or the Humboldt Current would be superimposed on top of these smaller-scale "waves"

Table 16.1 A complete list of phyletic biodiversity of eukaryotic organims. The phytogeny is taken from Margulis and Schwartz (1988). Information about a phylum's biome, lifestyle, the marine biome and habitat is provided. If a category was only occasionally found in a phyla then it was included in parentheses. Working estimate of species diversity were derived from the most recent literature avialable. The number of spccies described was similarly derived
