The ocean is one of the important ecosystems on Earth, covering 70% of the Earth's surface. Marine ecosystems are composed of various organisms and non organisms, which are not only important components of biodiversity, but also play a crucial role in global climate, water cycle, energy flow, and so on. The marine ecosystem is also one of the oldest ecosystems on Earth, which has existed for millions of years and has been continuously adapting and evolving. This article aims to explore the functions and values of marine ecosystems, enhance people's understanding of their functions and values, and promote the sustainable development of marine ecosystems.
