The coral reefs are part of the marine biome. Often called "rainforests of the sea", shallow coral reefs form some of Earth's most diverse ecosystems. They occupy less than 0.1% of the world's ocean area, about half the area of France, yet they provide a home for at least 25% of all marine species.
A biome can be defined* as a major community on earth with a predominant vegetation and adapted organisms to that particular environment.
