Fucus ceranoides on reduced salinity eulittoral mixed substrata
|Within Vocab||Marine Habitat Classification for Britain and Ireland Version 97.06|
|Definition||Boulders, cobbles and stones in the eulittoral zone that are subject to reduced salinity conditions may be covered by Fucus ceranoides. This biotope typically occurs where streams run across the shore, or towards the heads of marine inlets. Other fucoids may occur, but are generally scarce. Amongst the fucoid algae, opportunistic green algae such as Enteromorpha spp. and Ulva lactuca are frequently encountered. Littorinid molluscs and clumps of large Mytilus edulis may be present. Species diversity is generally low with red algae being rare or absent. Sediment, on which the cobbles and boulders frequently lie, often contains infaunal species such as the lugworm Arenicola marina and the ragworm Hediste diversicolor.|
