Caption: Zonation. View of the various zones of plant life around the tide line of a rocky coast. This separation of plant species into distinct bands is known as zonation. Various species of seaweed abound by the water and the lower rocks. Above the seaweed is a filmy black layer of the lichen Verrucaria maura. This gives way to various species of crustose lichens (off-white and yellow). At the very top of the rocks, on a thin layer of soil, hardy grasses can be seen. The seaweeds differentiate into levels within levels, with different species at different heights relating to the mean sea level. The edges between two species are sometimes sharp and well defined.
