The groups of organisms which live in, or near the aquatic region are known as benthos or benthic zone. Biodiversity is now commonly defined as the variety of life in genes, species and habitats.Peer review refers to the work done during the screening of submitted manuscripts and funding applications. This process encourages authors to meet the accepted standards of their discipline and reduces the dissemination of irrelevant findings, unwarranted claims, unacceptable interpretations, and personal views. Publications that have not undergone peer review are likely to be regarded with suspicion by academic scholars and professionals.
