    • 2013 July 20, “Welcome to the plastisphere”, in The Economist, volume 408, number 8845:
      Plastics are energy-rich substances, which is why many of them burn so readily. Any organism that could unlock and use that energy would do well in the Anthropocene. Terrestrial bacteria and fungi which can manage this trick are already familiar to experts in the field. Dr Mincer and Dr Amaral-Zettler found evidence of them on their marine plastic, too.
  2. Relating to or connected with the sea (in operation, scope, etc.), especially as pertains to shipping, a navy, or naval forces.
  3. Used or adapted for use at sea.
  4. (zoology) Inhabiting the high seas; oceanic; pelagic. (distinguished from maritime or littoral)
  5. (obsolete) Belonging to or situated at the seaside; maritime.
