Waves Are Important to Intertidal Flora and Fauna

"Next to the water itself, waves constitute the most obvious aspect of the seashore environment. They are very important to the flora and fauna of the intertidal zone, the power of their breakers playing a large part in determining where life is possible for various species." (Excerpt from the book, Seashore Life of Southern California, by Sam Hinton, University of California Press, 1987, pg. 6)
