Question i :   Underlying substrate type
   Coastal habitats are divided on the basis of underlying substrate (which may be overlain with superficial deposits): sand substrates form coastal dune and sand habitats; shingle substrates form mobile or stable shingle beaches and banks; rock substrates (which include non-mobile boulders) comprise sea and coastal lagoon cliffs and rocky sea shores including the supra-littoral spray zone. Note that dune-slack pools follow path = sand.
