The Marine Menagerie

A virtual field guide to marine organisms commonly encountered on SEA cruises.

This prototype front page of the menagerie is based on a taxonomic categorization of marine organisms. We identify individuals from only the Eukaria domain of life; the other two domains (Bacteria and Archaea) are generally too small for us to monitor while at sea, though microbes and viruses are certainly with us constantly. We also concern ourselves here with only two kingdoms: plants and animals. Fungi and protists may be treated in future versions...
