Additional information

This biotope is characterized by macroalgal dominated, deep rockpools. The physical characteristics of the rockpool environment are described under 'Seasonal and longer term change' on the 'Ecology' page. Pyefinch (1943) and Goss-Custard et al. (1979) provide detailed species lists for the rockpools they studied in British and Irish waters.
