    Marine habitats are habitats that support marine life depends in some way on the saltwater that is in the sea (the term marine comes from the Latin mare, meaning sea or ocean).A habitat is an ecological or environmental area inhabited by one or more living species. The marine environment supports many kinds of these habitats.. Marine habitats can be divided into coastal and open. Our research on coastal habitats explores numerous topics including the effects of coastal habitat distribution and connectivity on fish and invertebrates, changes in wetlands over time and space from natural and human factors, and quantifying ecosystem service provision of coastal habitat complexes in different shorescapes.

    This book is written with the intention of providing a concise but readable account of coastal ecology for advanced undergraduates and immediate postgraduates. We have adopted a habitat-organismal ap­ proach because we believe that a knowledge of biota and major features of their environment is the best key to an understanding of both larger. Coastal waters are broad habitats that extend from the shoreline to within nautical miles of the coast. Many ocean animals seek out coastal habitats to hunt and forage for food, give birth and raise their young. Coastal currents and pollution from land heavily influence these areas.

Coastal areas are the richest, most biologically diverse regions of the sea, particularly where the seabed is rocky. This is because enough sunlight reaches the seabed to allow plants to grow while the rocks provide a home for the many different animals and plants that form rocky reef communities.This book describes critical environmental issues that face coastal ocean and Great Lakes areas, including eutrophication, habitat modification, hydrologic and hydrodynamic disruption, exploitation of resources, toxic effects on ecosystems and humans, introduction of nonindigenous species, global climate change and variability, and shoreline.
