Is it true that ocean biomes contain a wider biodiversity than land biomes?


Yes, and no.  It is uncertain how many species of animals and plants are contained within the ocean, or marine biome, and the same can be said about the tropical rainforest biome.  Species disappear from the planet every day due to pollution, over-harvesting (fish, plants etc.), and the introduction of foreign species into an eco-system.
