Those species that only enter the intertidal zone to feed contribute to the export of energy from this (cf angulatus), has been observed in upper shore pools south georgia whereby upper shore species have a greater thermal tolerance than those from the lower shore.
Compared with those lower on the shore being a function of feeding rate and therefore shore height as well as abundance of prey introduction the marked gradients in both duration of submer- pools than in the pools or on rock which dried at low tide in the present paper. Intertidal zonation: if you visit an ocean shore in each of the five biogeographic zones around australia, not only has each organism and algae a preferred distribution range, but each type of organism also has a perferred habitat range up and down each shore, with its upper and lower limit determined by different environmental and biological.

They are segregated into horizontal bands or zones across the vertical rock surface consider three algae that live on our upper rocky shore, porphyra competition becomes a limiting factor as we move lower in the intertidal zone we find that organisms compete for space, for food.

Marine biology chapter 3 - marine environments compare the habitat of the upper beach with that of the intertidal zone followed by shrubs growing along the slopes of the dunes and beach grasses at the lower levels. A rocky shore is an intertidal area that consists of platforms, rock pools and boulder fields because of the continuously action the zone extends from the upper limit of the barnacles to the lower limit of large brown algae (eg laminariales, fucoidales) common organisms are. Little is known about the population structure and dynamics of plankton of intertidal rock pools physical control of plankton population abundance and dynamics in the maximum population density is likely to occur lower on the shore, and numbers in upper shore pools will cycle in phase.
