Yesterday a historical event of great importance not only to marine scientists, but to the global community, took place in London. 2700 scientists from 80 countries met to discuss knowledge that has accumulated through a decade of marine research. The project was initiated 10 years ago and is called Census of Marine Life. This is probably one of the most extensive projects undertaken in the history of science.
