Although the island is situated directly east of the United States, Bermuda has a completely different fauna with origins related to the Caribbean and the Antilles through movement of the Gulf Stream.

Among these publications are The Marine Algae of Bermuda and The Field Guide to the Conspicuous Flora and Fauna of Bermuda both of which are published by the Bermuda Biological Station for Research.
