Abstract

Two general concepts in biogeography are latitudinal biodiversity gradients and biogeographic regions. Understanding those concepts is important in designing a protected area network, especially since climate change shifts species distributions. Rocky intertidal shores are a heterogeneous marine environment with habitat structures and extreme hydrodynamic activities, yet these habitats are suitable for macroalgae and their associated invertebrates. My thesis aimed to understand the distribution patterns of rocky intertidal assemblages and the effect of ocean warming on those patterns. To achieve this aim, I explored biodiversity, analysed latitudinal diversity gradients, evaluated biogeographic regions, and predicted the future distribution of those assemblages.
