Prasiola stipitata on nitrate-enriched supralittoral or littoral fringe rock
|Within Vocab||Marine Habitat Classification for Britain and Ireland Version 97.06|
|Definition||Supralittoral and littoral fringe bedrock that receives nitrate enrichment from nearby roosting sea birds is frequently characterised by a band or patches of the ephemeral tufty green alga Prasiola stipitata, which grows over the black lichen Verrucaria maura in the littoral fringe or yellow and grey lichens in the supralittoral zone. The Prasiola reaches its maximum abundance during the winter months. It generally dies out during the summer in southern Britain but in northern areas some Prasiola may be present all year round.|
