Challenges of Surviving the Intertidal Zones

"The incessant daily movements of the tides subject the intertidal zone to submersion in salty waters, to exposure to air, to drying and warming in sun and wind, to exposure to fresh water in rain, to different sets of predators when covered with water and when exposed, and to wave shock during incoming high tides and storms." (Excerpt from the book, The Audubon Society Nature Guides: The Pacific Coast, by Bayard and Evelyn McConnaughey, Alfred A. Knopf press, 1992, pg. 19)
