Filamentous green seaweeds on low salinity infralittoral mixed sediment or rock
|Within Vocab||Marine Habitat Classification for Britain and Ireland Version 97.06|
|Definition||Shallow muddy sediments, often with boulders, cobbles and pebbles around the edges of lagoons, that are exposed to wide salinity variations are unsuitable for colonisation by many species. Such areas may be colonised by a dense blanket of ephemeral green algae such as Enteromorpha spp., Chaetomorpha linum, Cladophora liniformis or Derbesia marina. This biotope may also contain some red seaweeds, such as Furcellaria lumbricalis, but always at low abundance (compare with SIR.PolFur). Amongst the filamentous green algae, grazing molluscs and solitary ascidians may be present.|
