Abstract
    This world of the deep has no sun and no plant life. And yet it is far from being an immense hostile desert. Why don't we dive among the "peoples of the night", the very strange luminescent organisms which migrate in the water column, the luxuriant populations of hydrothermal and cold sources, the sponge gardens and the deep coral reefs, the huge cetacean corpses which, as they decompose, attract exuberant life. Let's explore the abyss!
