For example, the Solomon Islands’ per-capita GDP of $600 USD ranks it as a lesser developed nation, and more than 75 percent of its labor force is engaged in subsistence and fishing.

With the ozone layer absorbing harmful ultraviolet radiation, life colonized the surface of Earth. A boat sails over coral reefs off of Alor, Indonesia. The combination of a high mutation rate and a horizontal gene transfer [63] ability makes them highly adaptable, and able to survive in new environments, including outer space. [64] They form an essential part of the planetary ecosystem.

"All parts of it are integral to the structure; if you remove parts, particularly at the bottom, it's detrimental to everything on top and threatens the whole structure. "And we're learning that in the oceans, species are very strongly linked to each other - probably more so than on land."
