We collected modern foraminiferal and environmental data from three back-barrier intertidal sites (Currituck Barrier Island, Oregon Inlet, and Pea Island) of the Outer Banks, North Carolina, United States, which have different salinity settings and a wind-driven tidal regime. The functional role of the intertidal oyster reef community in the southeastern Atlantic coastal zone is described. This description is based on a compilation of published data, as well as some unpublished information presented as hypotheses. The profile is organized in a hierarchical manner, such that relevant details of reef oyster biology (autecology) are presented, followed by a.

The ecology of intertidal flats of North Carolina book exposed to the rise and fall of the tides create the intertidal zone. HISTORICAL RELEVANCE.
One would think that the intertidal zone existed for as long as there was a coastline. The most apparent character of the area is the development of tidal channels, affecting mainly the intertidal zone.
In this case, the tidal flat is protected seaward by a beach barrier, but in many cases (low-energy waves and longshore currents) the tidal flats may directly pass into a shallow marine environment.

The intertidal region is an important model system for the study of ecology, especially on wave-swept rocky shores. The region contains a high diversity of species, and the zonation created by the tides causes species ranges to be compressed into very narrow bands.
The rocky intertidal region can be divided into four vertical zones. These zones are based on height and tidal influence. These four zones include from the highest to the lowest: the splash zone, the high intertidal zone, the mid-intertidal zone, and the low intertidal zone.
The splash or spray zone is the highest and driest area. This. "The ecology of intertidal flats of North Carolina: a community profile," FWS/OBS/39, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Office of Biological Services, Washington, DC.

North Inlet is a barrier-island-bounded, salt marsh estuary in coastal South Carolina, just north of the midpoint between Myrtle Beach and Charleston.
The inlet is flanked by Debidue Island to the north and North Island to the south. Jun 01, · A series of samples collected from November through February from a North Carolina sandy beach contained 27, invertebrates representing 41 species.
The sandy-beach community, as composed of a homogeneous group of organisms, was identified through the use of an index of faunal affinity. Community structure is described in terms of abundance, frequency diversity, Cited by: The rocky shore fauna of the North Atlantic region comprise a mixture of warm temperate and cold boreal species.
Many rocky intertidal invertebrates have temperate and cold water congeners, whose distributions overlap for a large section of their geographical distributions in Europe and North Africa (Crisp and Southward ).Cited by: R.N.

The intertidal zone is the most temporally and spatially variable of all marine habitats. It ranges from sand and mud flats to rocky reefs and allows the development of a wide variety of plant and animal communities. 'Intertidal Ecology' aims to fill this gap, providing an accessible introduction to the study of both rocky and sediment shores and relating these examples to general ecological principles.
The clear style, attractive illustrations and fresh approach of the authors will appeal to students of ecology at all levels." Weight (before packaging): g. Jul 01, · I was first exposed to this book as a high-school student, I think, and it has remained one of my favorites.

Despite the environmental challenges of the intertidal zone, there is a wide diversity of marine life forms that inhabit this ecosystem.
