1) There are three different marine biomes: coral reefs, estuaries, and oceans; oceans have the most species.

2) I would have to say seabirds for this question; is this question in a marine chapter??

If you do not take into consideration the size, then oceans. But coral reefs deffintly have the biggest density of species per their size

That's the problem with questions of that sort, they should specify that aspect. I would say that if the question is that vague then the response they are looking for is oceans though.
