An introduction to the study of zonation of plants and animals living on the rocky shore is presented along with a list of the materials needed and the procedures to be followed when making a study of the coast. A matrix shows the different organisms and their means of wave survival, protection from drying, and method of feeding in the Irish Moss Zone and Rockweed Zone. Data sheets are provided for the purpose of listing the plants and animals found, their approximate numbers, their type of environment, and their survival tactics in that environment. (JW)
