Discovering and Describing Diversity — From Deep-Sea to the ShoreEkin TilicInstitute of Evolutionary Biology, Univ. BonnExploration of our oceans continues to reveal unknown animal species. On average 2000 new marine species are described each year. The discovery of new and curious organisms inhabiting the deep-sea might seem expected; however, the vast number of undescribed species are not limited to these remote habitats. In fact, we still keep finding new species in some of the most studied coastal environments.
