Dense Fucus serratus on moderately exposed to very sheltered lower eulittoral rock
|Within Vocab||Marine Habitat Classification for Britain and Ireland Version 97.06|
|Definition||Moderately exposed to very sheltered lower eulittoral rock subject to fully marine conditions is typically characterised by a dense canopy of Fucus serratus (typically common - superabundant). There is a wide range of associated species, including barnacles, limpets Patella vulgata, littorinid molluscs, turf-forming red algae and the sponge Halichondria panicea. This biotope usually occurs immediately below a Fucus vesiculosus-barnacle mosaic (FvesB) on moderately exposed shores or a dense canopy of F. vesiculosus (Fves) or Ascophyllum nodosum (Asc) on sheltered shores; consequently low abundances of these species (typically less than frequent) may also occur in this biotope.|
