Intertidal Biome Prezi
Transcript of Intertidal Biome Prezi
The intertidal aquatic biome is diverse and has the most diverse array of aquatic life of all aquatic biomes. Due to the constantly changing nature of intertidal zones, all life forms in this biome have adapted to withstand air exposure and rough waters.
The animals in the intertidal zones of the world must be able to protect themselves in one way or another from the turbulent waters of this biome; as a result, many have adapted by burrowing in the sand, or by attaching themselves to the
(surface to adhere to)
Seeing as intertidal zones occur along coasts around the world, the temperature ranges from near freezing (in areas like Canada and Northern Europe) to much warmer, tropical temperatures (in areas like Africa and the Caribbean).
Intertidal plants have the same challenge as intertidal animals -- the quest to stay intacted and mounted in the areas in which they began growth. For this reason, not many rooted marine plants grow in intertidal zones. Vegetation in intertidal zones many consists of various algaes, rock lichens, some underwater grasses and seaweeds.

Tidepools are a signature of intertidal zones. From the drawing in and out of water from changing tides, the oceans of the world constantly give and take water from the coasts, sometimes resulting in tidepools. Tidepools are temporary, but some organisms, like the black-face blenny live in them.
