Laminaria hyperborea and foliose red seaweeds on moderately exposed infralittoral rock
|Within Vocab||Marine Habitat Classification for Britain and Ireland Version 97.06|
|Definition||Moderately exposed infralittoral bedrock and boulders characterised by a canopy of the kelp Laminaria hyperborea beneath which is an under-storey of foliose red seaweeds. This suite of biotopes differ from the wave exposed Laminaria hyperborea biotopes by having a lower diversity of encrusting faunal species. The foliose red seaweed component of the two suites of biotopes may also differ in composition with a tendency for MIR.Lhyp to include some more delicate filamentous species. Several variants of this biotope are described: kelp forests, kelp parks, kelp park and two tide-swept kelp types.|
