• Biotopes, 2014-2015, Cape Cod National Seashore, as determined by Coastal/Marine Ecological Classification Standard (CMECS) Classification

    Metadata Updated: March 17, 2021

    Benthic habitat maps were developed for the CACO study areas following the top-down mapping approach, for which habitat map units are geologically defined based on the presumption that geologic environments or features contain distinct biological assemblages. The resulting habitats are classified according to the CMECS framework and are referred to as “biotopes.” The term “biotope” is specific in that it integrates biotic-abiotic characteristics to offer more ecologically meaningful information. In this study, biotopes reflect the relationship between macrofaunal communities and geological features of their associated environments within the defined map units. The resulting biotopes are considered preliminary because the relationships identified have not been repeatedly demonstrated over time.
