Intertidal substrate of unknown consolidation inside channel
Intertidal area inside a channel where consolidation, energy, structural macrobiota and texture are unknown.
Disclaimer: Ecosystem type descriptions are based on biophysical attributes identified in Central Queensland through expert advice and supported by scientific literature. Not all ecosystem types are mapped based on current inventory, and many of the ecosystems described here may also occur in other parts of Queensland.
Intertidal area inside of a channel where consolidation, energy, structural macrobiota and texture are unknown. Tidal extent may be poorly differentiated. See ecosystem type (119) and variant of ecosystem type (2) within channel.
May provide movement corridors for birds and estuarine biota.
High tidal channels that are only intermittently connected tidally may provide important nursery habitat for fish e.g. barramundi.
