WHY ARE THERE NO MARINE INSECTS?

October 2007

There are no insects that spend their whole life cycle under the surface of the sea, and very few that spend even part of their life on or in the sea. Why not? This student-built website takes you through the various hypotheses (salinity, competitive exclusion etc) and provides you with lots of thought-provoking ideas. NB You can’t jump to the end and get “the answer”, for two reasons – a) there isn’t one and b) you have to collect the letters of a password by going through each hypothesis!
