Porphyra purpurea or Enteromorpha spp. on sand-scoured mid or lower eulittoral rock
|Within Vocab||Marine Habitat Classification for Britain and Ireland Version 97.06|
|Definition||Moderately exposed mid-shore bedrock and boulders occurring adjacent to areas of sand which significantly affects the rock. As a consequence of sand-abrasion, fucoids are scarce and the community is typically dominated by ephemeral algae, particularly Porphyra purpurea and Enteromorpha spp. Under the blanket of ephemeral algae, barnacles and limpets occur in the less scoured areas. Few other species are present. In areas where sand abrasion is less severe, the sand-binding red alga Rhodothamniella floridula occurs with other sand-tolerant algae and fucoid algae (especially Fucus serratus) (Rho).|
