Depth-stratified community zonation patterns on Gulf of Alaska rocky shores

  title={Depth-stratified community zonation patterns on Gulf of Alaska rocky shores},
  author={Brenda Konar and Katrin B Iken and Michael Edwards},
Zonation patterns along elevation and depth gradients are common in rocky intertidal and subtidal ecosystems (Underwood 1985; Foster & Schiel 1985; Hawkins et al. 1992; Bertness et al. 2006; and many others) and universal patterns in taxon composition, richness and abundance have been suggested (e.g. Stephenson & Stephenson
