 Rocky shore ecosystems

Rocky shore ecosystems are governed by the tidal movement of water and have diverse communities from the high tide to below the low tide line. The ecosystems of the rocky shore have a characteristic banding of different species which are influenced by the biotic and abiotic factors from above high tide to the sub-tidal zone.

 Roots: A life underground

When plants evolved from marine species and made their way onto land they had to overcome many challenges to survive and thrive on land. The evolution of an underground root system has enable plants to collect water and nutrients and helped to make it possible for land based plants to diversify into the 1000s of species currently present on Earth.
