Abstract

Mediterranean red coral (Corallium rubrum, Linnaeus, 1758.) is being exploited for many years and, although it is one of the most well-known corals, its biology and ecology is poorly understood and relatively unclear. The objective of this thesis is to gather as much information as possible and sum it up in one place, while concentrating on the coral as an individual, which is a part of a larger marine ecosystem. After a short introduction and systematics of the species, we are informed of biology of the coral through its three functional layers. Futhermore, we are informed of the interactions between the species and its environment. Here we discuss the distribution of the species and its relationship with other species (whether it is a one with its own species, predators, prey or with the human species).
