Broad Habitat - Supralittoral Rock

This broad habitat consists of coastal cliffs and slopes where the lower (seaward) edge runs along the high water mark. They are therefore not covered at high tide, but can be subject to sea spray. The substrate is rock, with or without a layer of bedrock-derived mineral soil. This substrate contrasts with the softer and more unstable mud, sand or shingle of the Supralittoral sediment broad habitat.
