In conclusion, plastic waste influences marine life. Mattsson et al. (2015) concretely and comprehensively discuss different plastic materials impacts on marine organisms. Li (2016) studies plastic entanglement as a specific side of the plastic impact. Besides, Barnes (2002) still needs to do some further research on the reason for injury and death based on habitats colonization. From this literature review, I found some influential reasons for marine species’ injuries and deaths in terms of plastic waste affecting habitat colonization, entanglement with plastic waste and various types of plastics. 4

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
