The Cambrian fauna, (trilobites, inarticulate brachiopods, etc.) declined slowly during this time.

Finally, the oceans provide fish and shellfish and other vital resources upon which humans depend, including jobs for millions of people. Vannevar Bush, director of the Office of Scientific Research and Development for the United States government, the forerunner of the National Science Foundation, wrote in July 1945 that "Science is a proper concern of government". [63] Science and technology research is often funded through a competitive process, in which potential research projects are evaluated and only the most promising receive funding.
