    1. Marine Ecology and Environment

    2. Introduction: Ecology and its Domain • Definition and scope of ecology • The word ‘ecology’ was first used by Ernest Haeckel in 1869. • Ecology is the scientific study of the interactions between organisms and their environment. • The word ‘ecology’ is derived from the Greek oikos, meaning ‘home’.

    3. Moderm definition: The scientific study of the distribution and abundance of organisms and the interactions that determine distribution and abundance. • The living world can be viewed as a biological hierarchy that starts with subcellular particles, and continues up through cells, tissues and organs. • Ecology deals with the next three levels: the individual organism, the population, and the community.

    4. Individual organism: • Population: consisting of individuals of the same species. • Community: consisting of a greater or lesser number of species populations.

    5. At the level of the organism, ecology deals with how individuals are affected by (and how they affect) their environment. • At the level of the population, ecology is concerned with the presence or absence of particular species, their abundance or rarity, and with the trends and fluctuations in the numbers. • Community ecology then deals with the composition and organization of ecological communities.
