      Ecological extinction caused by overfishing precedes all other pervasive human disturbance to coastal ecosystems, including pollution, degradation of water quality, and anthropogenic climate change. Historical abundances of large consumer species were fantastically large in comparison with recent observations.

The Atlantic is the second biggest ocean in the world and is between the continents of America and Europe and Africa.

Coastal ecosystems have distinct and recognizable land forms such as beaches, cliffs and coral reefs which are highly vulnerable Coastal Wetlands, Second Edition: An Integrated and Ecosystem Approach provides an understanding of the functioning of coastal ecosystems and the ecological services that they provide.

Coastal environments have spectral exponents intermediate to slopes to ocean vs. land. The tropical region is only one of several major marine biogeographic regions of the world: tropical, temperate (cold and warm), and polar.
