Intertidal ecology is the study of intertidal ecosystems, where organisms live between the low and high tide lines at low tide, the intertidal is exposed whereas at high tide, the intertidal is underwater. Organisms living within the intertidal zone interact directly and indirectly with each other species interactions form the basis for ecosystem properties and processes such as nutrient cycling and food webs.
