The main plant community habitats could be grouped as follows:
- Clay Cliffs
- Rock Cliffs
- sand substrate
- mud substrate- (estuarine)
The different habitats of our coastline enable very different communities of plants. A combination of specific physical factors determine the plant associations of the shorelines.
- slope of the shore
- type of substrate, ( eg.mud,clay sand)
- Exposure to salt spray,
- Exposure to sunlight.
- Exposure to sediment deposition
- Exposure to erosion.. wind or water.
Some examples of plant communities to be discussed are contained in the following shore sector pages.
Land Plants of Race Rocks will be included:
