Approximately 500 animal species and plants are listed as being the most typical for the infratidal and shallow subtidal benthic fauna of the Red Sea. Most of them are divided into communities typical for various soft and hard substrata, and at different water depths. The oceanographic conditions and the development of several of the communities are discussed in general terms.
