In a previous paper (Guiler, ) it was noted that December, January and July are critical months for intertidal organisms at Blackman's Bay and there is no reason for modifying this conclusion for Pipe Clay Lagoon.

Holden Harris Page 2 Abstract Vertical zonation of organisms within rocky intertidal ecosystems has been found to be driven by a combination of factors, including predation, settlement, desiccation stresses, and intra-specific competition.

The lower limits of adult prey organisms are typically attributed to predation, and the upper limits are believed to be driven by larval. Field observations on the variability of crude oil impact on indigenous hydrocarbon-degrading bacteria from sub-Antarctic intertidal sediments D.
