Amazing Ocean Diversity

The Wall Street Journal had an article yesterday (subscription may be required) about the amazing diversity in ocean species:

Researchers participating in the census say they have pinpointed about 250,000 species that live in the sea, but that another 750,000 species still elude human discovery. And that's without counting millions of microbe species, which constitute 90% of the ocean's biomass.

Just amazing.
