Marine flowering plants are a prominent feature of the intertidal zone of the Kenya coast. They extend from the low water level of neap tides (i.e. they are rarely exposed except at spring tides) to situations well beyond the reef in deep water. Some are exposed for considerable periods during spring tides while others, although situated high on the shore, grow in pools and depressions where a certain amount of water is left by the receding tide.
