gonatistagrisea:

I can’t get enough of these vast, imaginary, scientific landscape illustrations in my textbook. This one shows how the open ocean is represented by water that is offshore and away from coral reefs. This biome can be broken up into several zones. The photic zone contains sufficient light for photosynthesis by algae, while water in the aphotic zone is so deep that sunlight cannot penetrate.
