Abstract

The splash zone is characterized by three littorinids Nodilittorina pyramidalis, N. miliaris and Littorina pintado. The zones from splash to middle intertidal are occupied mainly by the oyster Saccostrea mordax, pulmonate limpet Siphonaria subatra and barnacle Chthamalus challengeri. The lower intertidal zone is characterized by vermetid shells, tube-dwelling polychaetes, sea urchins and coralline algae. Corals are attached to rocks in lower intertidal and subtidal zones at a few restricted sites. -from Authors
