    Rocky Shore Ecology: Holbeck Beach This study was conducted to deduce whether the height to width ratio of limpets altered across the three main zones on the shore: upper‚ middle and lower. It was carried out on Holbeck Beach‚ North Yorkshire‚ where limpets were measured in all three zones using random sampling. We found a significant difference in the height to width ratio between the upper and lower shore and upper and middle shore. This is due to many factors‚ including the threat of desiccation
