The ocean is the cradle of life, and caring for the ocean and protecting marine biodiversity is protecting humanity itself. In recent years, global marine governance with biodiversity as its focus has entered a period of rule reshaping. The Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) negotiations, negotiations on biodiversity conservation and sustainable use of offshore areas beyond jurisdiction (BBNJ), international undersea regional environmental management (REMP), and the construction of Antarctic protected areas have been promoted in a coordinated manner from multiple levels of science, management, legislation, policy, and practice, showing a chain trend. Understanding the formation, basic concept classification, and influencing factors of marine biodiversity is not only an essential issue in life science, but also has important guiding significance for the protection, development, and utilization of marine biological resources. This study analyzes the formation of marine biodiversity, focusing on the concept, classification, influencing factors, etc. of marine biodiversity, and provides basic suggestions for future research on marine biodiversity.
