Le vase et le microscope : origine et développement d'une connaissance scientifique du corail rouge de Méditerranée (XVIe-XXIe s.)

Abstract : Red coral, an emblematic product of the Mediterranean, has been studied by naturalists and scientists since antiquity. Previously classified in the mineral world, Corallium rubrum integrated the world of life at the initiative of Ferdinando di Marsigli and Jean-André Peyssonnel during the eighteenth century. In 1864, Henri de Lacaze-Duthiers published a Natural History of Coral, a major contribution to the physiology of this cnidarian. After tracing the emergence of scientific knowledge concerning the red coral, this study proposes a critical analysis of the work of Henri de Lacaze-Duthiers by bringing its contributions into line with contemporary research.
