How does the intertidal zone differ from the near shore zone in marine ecosystems? a)Organisms in the intertidal zone receive less light than organisms in the near shore zone. b)Organisms in the intertidal zone experience greater extremes of temperature and wave action than organisms in the near shore zone. c)Water depth in the intertidal zone is greater than in the near shore zone. D)Photosynthetic organisms occur in the intertidal zone but not in the near shore zone.
The intertidal zone (also known as the foreshore and seashore and sometimes referred to as the littoral zone) is the area that is exposed to the air at low tide and underwater at high tide (for example, the area between tide marks). This area can include many different types of habitats, including steep rocky cliffs, sandy beaches, or wetlands (e.g., vast mudflats). The area can be a narrow strip, as in Pacific islands that have only a narrow tidal range, or can include many meters of shoreline where shallow beach slope interacts with high tidal excursion.
hope that helped :)
It did, thanks :)
