Laminaria hyperborea park with hydroids, bryozoans and sponges on tide-swept lower infralittoral rock
|Within Vocab||Marine Habitat Classification for Britain and Ireland Version 97.06|
|Definition||Moderately exposed, tide-swept, rock with Laminaria hyperborea park characterised by a rich under-storey and stipe flora of foliose seaweeds such as Phycodrys rubens, Plocamium cartilagineum, Callophyllis laciniata, Heterosiphonia plumosa, Cryptopleura ramosa and Delesseria sanguinea. Amongst the red seaweeds is a rich fauna comprising sponges, anemones (such as Alcyonium digitatum, Sagartia elegans and Urticina felina), hydroids, colonial ascidians and bryozoans. At some sites, instead of being covered by red seaweeds, the kelp stipes may be heavily epiphytised by the sponge Halichondria panicea or the bryozoan Alcyonidium diaphanum, with smaller quantities of hydroids such as Tubularia indivisa. Both the flora and fauna of this biotope are similar to the wave exposed kelp park (EIR.LhypR.Pk), but this MIR.Lhyp.TPk has a greater faunal component. Further data analysis is required to clarify the differences, however.|
