About This Special Issue
Marine biology is the scientific study of organisms in the ocean or other marine or brackish bodies of water. Given that in biology many phyla, families and genera have some species that live in the sea and others that live on land, marine biology classifies species based on the environment rather than on taxonomy. Marine biology covers a great deal, from the microscopic, including most zooplankton and phytoplankton to the huge cetaceans which reach up to a reported 30 meters in length. A large proportion of all life on Earth exists in the oceans. Exactly how large the proportion is unknown, since many ocean species are still to be discovered. The aim of this special issue is to invite front-line researchers and authors to submit original research papers on exploring Marine Biology.

    Abstract: To establish species-specific systematics to avoid confusing identification of four main commercial species of genus Anguilla in Korea, the relevant species were classified by morphological and molecular methodologies, using body measurement, random amplified polymorphic DNA, and mitochondrial 16S and 12S rDNA determination. Four species of the gen... Show More

    Abstract: The aim of this well-thought and complex physical rehabilitation program is to expand the body-motor activity of young athletes with mild myopia. It increases one’s body-resistance to external conditions. It enhances the way the bodily-organs and the whole body function. It has been found out that students with myopia are lagging behind in physical... Show More
