Davide talks about reef-like structures called tegnue that form as a result of the biological processes of certain species of marine life forms, and how these structures provide a home for other aquatic creatures. Davide also explains some of the differences between the lagoon and sea habitats and
how these factors can affect the types of animals that can be found living in them.[October 2015]
