1. Church Reef, in Wembury Bay, near Plymouth, was selected for a survey of common intertidal plants and animals. 2. Four traverses were accurately levelled relative to Ordnance Datum, and their floras and faunas examined. 3. The relation between predicted tide levels and probable actual levels is discussed, and the importance of the “splash zone” is stressed. 4. As an outcome of 2 and 3, it appears that on Church Reef the most critical levels on the shore, for the species examined, are: ( a… CONTINUE READING
