Example text

The periwinkle Oxystele variegata replaces the east coast O. tubularis. , and mosslike Caulacanthus ustulatua and Bostrychia mixta. The lower eulittoral has extensive growths of the serpulid tubeworm Pomatoleios kraussii and the sandy tube of Gunnarea capensis. A third polychaete, Dodecaceria pulchra, is a common feature of this subzone. In the lower part there are extensive beds of the mussel Perna perna. At the bottom of this subzone, a well-developed mosaic of the large limpet Patella cochlear and lithothamnion covers the rock surface with ephemeral algae forming typical algal gardens.

In his scheme, Lewis extended the term littoral to include the Stephensons’ supralittoral fringe and called the latter the littoral fringe. The rest of the littoral zone down to the upper limit of the laminarians is called the eulittoral zone. Lewis did not distinguish a zone equivalent to the Stephensons’ infralittoral fringe. In this book, cases where a fringing zone between the eulittoral and the sublittoral is recognized will be called the sublittoral fringe. As Russell (1991) points out, identification of the primary zones by inspection of a shore is necessarily influenced by the species composition of the topmost layer of the communities.

Argenvillea belt (P. argenvillea, Bunodactis reynaudi, Gunnerea capensis, Champia lumbricalis, Plocamium cornutum, species of Gigartina, corallines, and lithothamnion). The kelp bed community structure has been described by Field et al. (1980). It includes a mosaic patchwork of understory algae, mussels (Aulacomya), sea The Ecology of Seashores urchins (Parechinus), holothurians, and the spiny lobster, Jasus lalandii. 1 WAVE ACTION AND ZONATION Introduction Wave action is the most important factor that causes variation in the patterns of distribution of organisms on the shore, modifying the height of a particular zone and determining the kinds of species present.
