Fantasised since Antiquity, collected from the beginning of the 19th century by naturalists who did not hesitate to take to the water to describe them, and then transcended by artists, algae have never ceased to intrigue.
For the first time, a richly illustrated book recounts the history of the study of these fragile and threatened marine organisms, sometimes even threatening but always fascinating.
