Laminaria hyperborea park and foliose red seaweeds on moderately exposed lower infralittoral rock
|Marine Habitat Classification for Britain and Ireland Version 97.06
|Below the dense kelp forest (MIR.Lhyp.Ft) on moderately exposed lower infralittoral bedrock and boulders, the kelp thins out to form a park. Beneath the kelp, the rock and kelp stipes are covered by an often dense turf of foliose red seaweeds. The faunal component of this biotope is similar to that found below the kelp in the upper circalittoral zone. Many species of foliose red seaweed found in this biotope, such as Membranoptera alata and Ptilota plumosa, occur in the shallower kelp forest at greater abundance. Other species such as Hypoglossum hypoglossoides, Pterothamnion plumula and Brongniartella byssoides are more abundant in this zone than the upper infralittoral.
