Abstract:     
This article reviews the intersection of science and international law in the area of preserving marine biodiversity. It provides an overview of how the science concerning marine biodiversity preservation has changed focus in the last decade or so and then looks at how international law is beginning to react to that change in scientific emphasis in the international preservation of biodiversity. It ends with a recommendation that nations adopt a more comprehensive approach to marine biodiversity preservation and a recognition that such comprehensive protection packages are beginning to become part of international law.
