Marine Life Census rolls on

Here's another piece on the Census of Marine Life, with some new observations by the scientists involved. The first group of papers is out, and the census will formally end this October. The exploration won't though: 60-80% of marine species have yet to be collected at all. The project's senior scientist believes "most of the big stuff is known," but note he said "most," not "all."
