Intertidal biodiversity and physical habitat complexity on historic masonry walls: a comparison with modern concrete infrastructure and natural rocky cliffs

Abstract:

Maritime built heritage (e.g., historic seawalls) represents an important component of coastal infrastructure around the world. Despite this, the ecological communities supported by these structures are poorly understood. At seven locations across the UK, we compared the biodiversity and physical habitat characteristics of (1) historic (pre-1900s) masonry walls, (2) concrete walls, and (3) natural rocky cliffs.


Historic masonry walls were found to support significantly more spe...
