The role of marine ecosystems in human life is enormous, and their service functions and ecological value are important components of the Earth's life support system, as well as basic elements of social and environmental sustainable development. This study aims to conduct a comprehensive analysis and summary of the classification and characteristics of marine ecosystems. Specifically, this study will first introduce the classification methods and characteristics of marine ecosystems, including classification methods based on biological community and ecological functions, as well as in-depth exploration of the physical environmental characteristics of marine ecosystems, characteristics of regional ecosystems, species adaptability and ecological adaptability, in order to provide scientific basis for the protection and management of marine ecosystems.
