The proposed research activities aim to an updating of the available information about the presence, distribution and characteristics of the Ligurian coralligenous habitat, with particular focus for the vertical rocky cliff up to 100 m depth. The study is aimed not only at defining what are the parameters and indexes related to the state of health and pressures affecting this habitat (diversity indices, anthropic activity, bio-construction/ bio-erosion ratio) but also to seek innovative methods based on techniques of remote sensing to test the state of the assemblage on the basis of its biological complexity.
