Underlying substrate type
|Coastal habitats are divided on the basis of underlying substrate (which may be overlain with superficial deposits): <strong>sand</strong> substrates form coastal dune and sand habitats; <strong>shingle</strong> substrates form mobile or stable shingle beaches and banks; <strong>rock</strong> 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 = <strong>sand</strong>.|
