Studying the immense variety of life on the planet and the complex relations among living things — what we now call biodiversity — has been a fundamental activity of the American Museum of Natural History since its founding. In 1993, responding to concern among its scientists over rapid species loss and increasing habitat degradation around the world, the Museum created the interdisciplinary Center for Biodiversity and Conservation.

This document is specifically about those aspects of marine
biology that are used in marine conservation. It is not intended
to be a complete primer on marine conservation, which
incorporates other sciences (most notably the social sciences)
as well as traditional knowledge. To learn more about other
aspects of marine conservation, please refer to the following
marine modules: Marine Conservation Policy, Marine Protected
Areas and MPA Networks, and International Treaties for Marine
Conservation and Management, all of which complement this
