Alaria esculenta on sublittoral fringe bedrock
|Marine Habitat Classification for Britain and Ireland Version 97.06
|Alaria esculenta forest on exposed sublittoral fringe bedrock with an encrusting fauna of mussels and barnacles. The rock surface is covered with encrusting coralline red algae. Two variants of this biotope are described. The more wave exposed of the two lacks Laminaria digitata and is also characterised by patches of mussels (EIR.Ala.Myt). The other variant is slightly less exposed and is characterised by a mixture of A. esculenta and L. digitata (EIR.Ala.Ldig).
