What is a seashore biome l.jpg
What is a seashore biome?

  • Formed where land meets ocean

  • Also called intertidal zones

  • Characterized by: wave action intensity, disturbance frequency, bottom type

  • Physical factors that vary: tide, temperature, and salinity

  • Fragile ecosystems, easily damaged

Coastline: “that part of an island or continent that borders an ocean, gulf, sea, or large lake”



Common plant species l.jpg
Common Plant Species

  • Phytoplankton >>>>>>

  • Zooplankton

  • Seaweeds

  • Sea lettuce

  • Algae

Common Animal Species

  • Herring gull >>>>>>>

  • Worm

  • Shanny

  • Edible crab

  • Common prawn



Symbiotic relationship l.jpg
Symbiotic Relationship

  • Seashore lupine has a symbiotic relationship with soil bacteria

  • It is commensalism, because the seashore lupine obtains nitrogen from the bacteria, but the bacteria is not affected


Biotic and abiotic features l.jpg
Biotic and Abiotic Features

  • Biotic

    • plant and animal examples

  • Abiotic

    • Rocks

    • Sand

Seashore Conservation

“When investigating a seashore it is important to remember that the welfare of the plants and animals must come first. If seaweeds are attached to rocks do not try to pull them off, just examine them where they are growing. Handle animals with great care, returning them to the place where they were found.Anemones and limpets are normally firmly stuck to rocks and any attempt to remove them may result in their death. Replace any large stones that are removed – animals that live on the underside soon die if left exposed.”
