From Google :
What is the "Twilight Zone"?
When most people hear the term "Twilight Zone", they probably think about Rod Serling's classic television series about strange and bizarre events. The term has a very different meaning to biologists. In fact, it even represents slightly different concepts to different researchers. For biologists who study organisms that live in caves, the "Twilight Zone" is the region just at the edge of where visible light from the entrance of a cave reaches. To marine researchers, the term has different meanings depending on what part of the ocean is being discussed. In the pelagic (open-ocean) realm, the "Twilight Zone" refers to the depth range between about 500 and 1,500 feet (150 and 750 meters) beneath the surface; whereas in coral reef environments, it generally refers to somewhat shallower depths. The common thread among all of these meanings in biology is that the term represents a transition from a region that receives sunlight during the daytime, to a region that remains in perpetual blackness. Because most life ultimately derives energy from sunlight, this transition is of relatively great ecological significance.
I concur with extraneous, sami and Ross.
Thanks for the replies, Rhymer & Lezzles.
