Re-establishment of the seaweed may depend on the ability to out-compete other species and this may be dependent on suitable environmental conditions. A reduction in wave action would have little effect as the species is naturally found in wave sheltered conditions. Journal of Phycology, 44 (5), 1146-1153. Resilience is thus assessed as ‘Low’ and resistance as ‘Medium. Long term changes of macroalgal vegetation in the Skagerrak area. Therefore when resistance is ‘Medium’, recovery will be very fast resulting in a ‘High’ resilience score due to very efficient colonization of areas adjacent to Fucus serratus patches.

Species associated with this biotope are therefore likely to be tolerant to an increase in salinity from 35 to 40 units for one year. The MarLIN sensitivity assessment approach used below has been superseded by the MarESA (Marine Evidence-based Sensitivity Assessment) approach (see menu). Journal of Experimental Marine Biology and Ecology, 43, 107-119. & Johnson, L.E., 1991. Sensitivity within the direct spatial footprint of this pressure is, therefore ‘High’. However this will occur at a cost, reducing photosynthetic rate and hence affecting the growth rate of the seaweed. Kraufvelin, P., Ruuskanen, A., Nappu, N. & Kiirikki, M., 2007. Cambridge: Cambridge University Press. Phenotypic plasticity plays therefore an important role in determining the sensitivity of individual populations to changes in temperature. Seaweeds have a critical water content. Bord Iascaigh Mhara: Dun Laoghaire. However, a change of 0.1-0.2 m/s(the benchmark) is unlikely to adversely affect the biotope, although a reduction may decrease feeding and hence growth rates.

The settlement of new colonies of the breadcrumb sponge Halichondria panicea is likely to occur within one year with growth rate ranging from −0.1 to 0.4 cm2/day. Cole & Sheath, R.G.). & Hawkins, S.J., 1999. Kinne, O. Other studies confirm that loss of canopy had both short and long-term consequences for benthic communities in terms of diversity resulting in shifts in community composition and a loss of ecosystem functioning such as primary productivity (Lilley & Schiel, 2006; Gollety et al., 2008). The effect of dissolved copper on the increase in length of four species of intertidal fucoid algae. Organic enrichment can stimulate the production of primary consumers and may lead to eutrophication (see ‘nutrient enrichment’ pressure). (1974) and Boalch & Jephson (1981) noted a reduction in the cover of fucoids at Wembury, south Devon, when compared to surveys conducted by Colman (1933). (20/05/2015).

The breadcrumb sponge Halichondria panicea has a mechanism for sloughing off its complete outer tissue layer together with any debris (Barthel & Wolfrath, 1989). Poorly attached massive forms may be ripped off by an increase in water flow rate leading to the death of large colonies. Dons, C., 1927. This article uses anatomical terminology. All marine habitats and benthic species are considered to have a resistance of ‘None’ to this pressure and to be unable to recover from a permanent loss of habitat (resilience is ‘Very Low’). Fucus serratus, the toothed wrack, is a robust, olive-brown shrubby seaweed that grows in high densities low on the seashore. the hydroid, Dynamena pumila, the bryozoans Flustrellidra hispida, Alcyonidium hirsutum, Alcyonidium polyoum, Electra pilosa, and the polychaete Spirorbis spirorbis.

Re-establishment of the seaweed may depend on the ability to out-compete other species and this may be dependent on suitable environmental conditions. The serratus anterior muscle runs from the 8th or 9th rib, and connects to the front of the shoulder blade. Fretter, V. & Graham, A., 1994. A change towards a sedimentary or soft rock substratum would lead to the direct loss of suitable attachment areas resulting in the loss of Fucus serratus, Chondrus crispus and other red seaweeds. Human trampling has been shown to significantly reduce the cover of fucoids on a shore (Holt, Fucoid algae readily accumulate heavy metals within their tissues. A re-examination of the seaweeds on Colman's traverses at Wembury. Marine Biology, 155 (6), 583-591. Most fucoids are cold-temperate species (Lüning, 1984), and temperatures above 20°C are generally considered unsuitable (Zou et al., 2012). Henry, B.E. There are two size classes: germlings less than 10 cm (30-40 percent of the population); and adult plants greater than 40 cm. & Southward, A.J., 1992. Fucus serratus is dioecious, perennial and reproduces sexually producing high numbers of eggs (Knight & Parke, 1950 estimated that large plants produce over a million eggs during the breeding season). Bertness, M.D., Leonard, G.H., Levine, J.M., Schmidt, P.R. fish and marine mammals rather than seabed habitats. The biotope group is ‘Not Sensitive’ to a change in temperature at the pressure benchmark. & Picton, B.E., 1997. Umar, M., McCook, L. & Price, I., 1998.

Regional scale differences in the determinism of grazing effects in the rocky intertidal. Oecologia, 148 (4), 672-681. A reduction in water flow is likely to result in a loss of the suspension feedeing species, an overall reduction in species richness, and result in loss of this biotope, as it is replaced by another Fucus serratus dominated biotope, e.g. & Maggs, C.A., 2007. The sensitivity of different stages in the life-history of Fucus and of other algae, to certain biocides. They suggested that the raised edges of the slatey rock severed fronds when the rocks were walked over. Moore & R.

Germlings are however protected from desiccation by the canopy of adults. The effect of human trampling on biodiversity of rocky shores: monitoring and management strategies. Oecologia, 78, 357-360. The critical water content for Fucus serratus is estimated at 40% with water losses past this point causing irreversible damage.

(1997) documented the recovery of Chondrus crispus after a rocky shore in Nova Scotia, Canada, was totally denuded by an ice scouring event. Marine Environment Resource Mapping And Information Database (MERMAID): Marine Nature Conservation Review Survey Database. When in high densities, the seaweed competes for space light and nutrients. Connell, J.H., Hughes, T.P. Occurrence dataset: https://doi.org/10.15468/goidos accessed via GBIF.org on 2018-10-01. Fucus serratus and Chondrus crispus are both intertidal species adapted to a degree of periodic desiccation. Malm et al. However the moderately strong tidal currents of this biotope enable these species to disperse over greater distances than in slow flowing environments. & Reker, J.B., 2004. Dispersal by macroalgae. Algal blooms have the potential to block light from underlying plants, thereby reducing their photosynthetic capacity. Once conditions return to 'normal' Fucus serratus is likely to rapidly regain photosynthesising capabilities as well as growth rate. SEWBReC Algae and allied species (South East Wales). Other dominant macrofaunal species found on Fucus serratus include Lacuna pallidula, Littorina mariae, Amphithoe rubricata, Idotea granulosa and epiflora include Rhydomenia palmata and Elachista fucicola. Segrove, F., 1941. This scenario can reasonably be expected at low tide in summer in Britain, although the Fucus canopy is likely to protect the underlying red algae to some extent. & Mota, C., 2009. Fucoids are however highly flexible and are able to reorientate their position in the water column to become more streamlined. If the entire population of Fucus serratus is removed, other species may come to dominate and the recovery will take considerably longer. Irradiance below light compensation point of photosynthetic species can compromise carbon accumulation (Middelboe et al., 2006). Propagule dispersal, fertilization, settlement, and recruitment are also influenced by water movement (Pearson & Brawley, 1996). Minchinton et al. The tissue of Halichondria panicea holds some water and can tolerate a certain degree of desiccation. Overall, disturbance causes a shift towards a disturbance tolerant seaweed community (Little et al., 2009). It is however possible that acute changes in temperature will have adverse effects resulting in mortalities. The biotope group is ‘Not Sensitive’ to a change in temperature at the pressure benchmark. Organisms living on the fronds and holdfasts will be washed away with the algae whereas free-living community components could find new habitat in surrounding areas. & Sidwell, J.M.C., 1974. The fronds are about 2 cm wide, splitting in two repeatedly. & Vadas, R.L., 1999. The effects of scallop dredging on gravelly seabed communities. Loss/degradation of the Fucus serratus population would thus result in direct loss/degradation of the associated community and significantly alter the character of the biotope. In addition, early life history stages will be more susceptible than adults (Henry & Van Alstyne, 2004). The ecology of shallow sublittoral benthos (ed. Ascidian growth rate and survival at high inorganic particulate concentrations. Oecologia, 150 (3), 464-476. Adult plants are tolerant of exposure to spills of crude oil although very young germlings are intolerant of relatively low concentrations of 'water soluble' extractions of crude oils. For annual species, including the star ascidian Botryllus schlosseri, reduced growth could prove fatal. Belfast: Ulster Museum. Resistance and resilience are therefore both assessed as ‘High’ (no impacts to recover from). Go! Reproductive ecology of Chondrus crispus (Rhodophyta, Gigartinales) from Nova Scotia, Canada. British Phycological Journal, 11, 115-142. The biotope group is, therefore ‘Not Sensitive’ to this pressure at the pressure benchmark. Fucus serratus is the main structural species as its removal will lead cause the decline of associated species and eventually to a change towards a different biotope. 58-96. & Johnston, A.M., 1997. Marine Environmental Research, 3, 5-13. Recreational ecology. Reproductive patterns in central and marginal populations of a large brown seaweed: drastic changes at the southern range limit. ISBN 1 861 07561 8. They feature bladderlike floats (pneumatocysts), disk-shaped holdfasts for clinging to rocks, and mucilage-covered blades that resist desiccation and temperature changes. Pearson, G.A. The MarESA approach reflects the recent conservation imperatives and terminology and is used for sensitivity assessments from 2014 onwards. The trampling treatments used were 0, 20, 80, and 160 steps per m2 per spring tide for 8 months between March and November. Although no specific evidence is described confidence in this assessment is ‘High’, due to the incontrovertible nature of this pressure. Yorkshire Wildlife Trust Shoresearch. Both resistance and resilience are assessed as ‘High’; the biotope is therefore ‘Not Sensitive’ to this pressure. Journal of Experimental Marine Biology and Ecology, 31, 303-313. Seaweed photosynthesis declines on emersion and recommences when recovered with water. As the biotope occurs in very strong tidal flow (>3 m/s) an increase in water flow is unlikely. Once removed, the attachment cannot be reformed causing the death of the algae. (2013) found that opportunistic ephemeral green algae such as Ulva sp. Ecological studies of economic red algae. Water flow in tide-and wave-dominated beds of the seagrass Thalassia testudinum . In addition, increased water flow will cause scours though increased sediment movement affecting in particular small life stages of macroalgae by removing new recruits from the substratum and hence reducing successful recruitment (Devinny & Volse, 1978) (see ‘siltation’ pressures). G.W. d'Avack, E.A.S. Journal of Experimental Marine Biology and Ecology, 7, 197-206. An increase in the vertical sediment overburden can also reduce growth whilst hindering the regeneration abilities of adults (Umar et al., 1998). None of the components of this biotope have known obligate relationships and the removal of non-target species will therefore not have a significant impact. Similarly, Keough & Quinn (1998) did not detect any effect of trampling on algal turf species. Epifaunal associates of Fucus serratus at Dale, south-west Wales. Reproduction commences in late spring/early summer and continues through summer and autumn, peaking in August - October. Advances in Marine Biology. Occurrence dataset: https://doi.org/10.15468/vntgox accessed via GBIF.org on 2018-09-25. Marine Biological Association of the United Kingdom, Plymouth, 129 pp. This community is encouraged by the increased water movement. The assessment is based on expert knowledge resulting in a 'Low' confidence score. Macroalgae canopies buffer the effects of high temperatures and water loss on organisms below their fronds in particular when exposed to air. Zuccaro, A., Schoch, C.L., Spatafora, J.W., Kohlmeyer, J., Draeger, S. & Mitchell, J.I., 2008. Bradshaw, C., Veale, L.O., Hill, A.S. & Brand, A.R., 2002. Clearly, mechanical abrasion due to vehicles, jack-up-barges, or grounding vessels will exceed the abrasive 'intensity' of trampling by humans or livestock. The biotope has thus a ‘Low’ sensitivity to organic enrichment at the level of the benchmark. & Murray, S.N., 1993. Fucus serratus, commonly inhabit narrow fjords where salinity can vary widely along a spatial (kms) and/or temporal (hours to daily) scale. In Palmaria palmata, 50% of the plant's water content can be lost in less than 4 hours in dry air at 25°C (Kain & Norton, 1990). However, hypersaline conditions may result in damage to the fucoid but loss of associated community (e.g. Increased temperature (>15°C) can enhance biotic stress on Fucus plants by increasing mico- and macrofouling rates (Wahl et al., 2010). British prosobranch molluscs: their functional anatomy and ecology, revised and updated edition. Juvenile life stages of the brown alga Fucus serratus L. are more sensitive to combined stress from high copper concentration and temperature than adults. Dudgeon, S.R. & Harkin, E., 1985. There is considerable literature on the light compensation point of marine algae (see Luning, 1990) but it is difficult to correlate such evidence with 'shading', as light saturation and compensation points depend on light availability, light quality, season and turbidity.

Frayed at the edges: selective pressure and adaptive response to abiotic stressors are mismatched in low diversity edge populations. To interrogate UK data visit the NBN Atlas. Sustained or repeated episodes of reduced dissolved oxygen have the potential to severely degrade an ecosystem (Cole et al., 1999). It is attached by a basal disc-shaped holdfast. Parasitology, 124 (07), 137-151. Journal of Experimental Marine Biology and Ecology, 43, 107-119. Knowlton & Highsmith (2005) found a rapid response to tissue damage from nudibranch grazing with the sponge recovering within 4 weeks from grazing impacts. Marine Fauna of the Isle of Man. O'Brien, P.J. However, tolerance is likely to vary with species and their growth form and little species specific data was found. https://www.marlin.ac.uk/habitats/detail/295 4. distinct sublittoral fringe is not always apparent and this biotope can therefore extend from below the Fucus serratus zone (Fserr) into the upper infralittoral zone, though there may be a mixed Saccharina latissima and Laminaria digitata zone (Slat.Ldig) in between. Fucus serratus is dioecious, perennial and reproduces sexually producing high numbers of eggs (Knight & Parke, 1950 estimated that large plants produce over a million eggs during the breeding season). Comparatively, the heavily utilized ledge displayed a reduction in larger, branching algal species (e.g. Marine Biology, 100 (1), 31-40. Seed, R., Elliott, M.N., Boaden, P.J.S. Foliose algae were particularly affected and decreased in cover from 75% to 9.1% in trampled plots. The lowest part of the shore is part of the infralittoral zone and is identified as " Laminaria digitata on moderately exposed sublittoral fringe rock (IR.MIR.KR.Ldig)". Experimental studies have shown that limpets control the development of macroalgae by consuming microscopic phases (Jenkins et al., 2005) or the adult stages (Davies et al., 2007).

Flat periwinkle (Littorina obtusata) on toothed wrack (Fucus serratus) Limpets (Patella vulgata) – found on rocky shores with all levels of exposure in the British Isles Shore Crabs (Carcinus maenas) – found on all types of shore in the British Isles Cushion Starfish (Asterina gibbosa) – found on the lower shore or in rockpools Fucus serratus is more susceptible to desiccation than other Fucus species located further up the shore and subjected more frequently to aerial exposure (Schonbeck & Norton, 1978). However, it should be noted that phenotypic plasticity will influence the tolerance of individual population. Desiccation facilitates wave-induced mortality of the intertidal alga Fucus gardneri. Macroalgae are attached to the substratum by a holdfast and are thus not able to relocate in response to increased sedimentation. The spatial niche of Dynamena pumila (L.) and Gonothyraea loveni (Allman) (Hydrozoa) within a Fucus serratus L. community. Rees, H.L., Waldock, R., Matthiessen, P. & Pendle, M.A., 2001.

The assessment for abrasion at the surface only is, therefore, considered to equally represent sensitivity to this pressure’. Re-establishment of the seaweed may depend on the ability to out-compete other species and this may be dependent on suitable environmental conditions. The Fucus canopy is also likely to protect other underlying species to a great extent. The changes in dominant species and community structure take some time to develop and, although some effects occur rapidly, many are manifested over a period of several years (Schiel & Lilley, 2011). Marine Ecology Progress Series, 287, 77-86. For example, the sea squirt Ascidiella scabra can extend its siphons to a small extent and can maintain a passage through the silt to the siphons.
