Marine biology is the study of life in the oceans - from microscopic plankton to the largest animals on earth, the blue whales like biology, marine biology has many, diverse fields of study contained within it including the study of the molecules within cells (molecular biology), the functions and adaptations of organisms (physiology), and populations of organisms and their interactions with. Plankton are primarily divided into broad functional (or trophic level) groups: phytoplankton (from greek phyton, or plant), autotrophic prokaryotic or eukaryotic algae that live near the water surface where there is sufficient light to support photosynthesisamong the more important groups are the diatoms, cyanobacteria, dinoflagellates and coccolithophores.
