Not many places in the world where it is so easy to see a border, a real boundary between two different places. One of them is into the boundary between the sea and the land. In marine ecology we call this: ecotone.
So, an ecotone is a transition area between two biomes. It is where two communities meet and can integrate. It may be narrow or wide, and it may be local (the zone between a field and forest) or regional (the transition between forest and grassland ecosystems). An ecotone may appear on the ground as a gradual blending of the two communities across a broad area, or it may manifest itself as a sharp boundary line. Ecotone means literaly “a place where the ecosystems are in tension”
It is a fact that that the animals a¡or plans can live in one place is unthinkable in the other, and vice versa. Here, at KBR , just below the jetty you can see the difference
And just between air and water (and due to changing tides) only a few species of animals can live: sea anemones, crabs, sea cucomber, sea stars, tube worms, sea urchins and others invertebrates.
Beyond this frotera, now into the sea blue, we can see a orange gorgonian. And beyond the deep, the life in Lembeh Strait. (Here you can see some nice pictures from our client this week , Mr Willi).
Referring to who we visited during the last seven days : guests from USA , UK , Italy , Portugal , Spain, Australia , Singapore and Hong Kong.
Special for us was the nights dives last week. We went looking for differents critters than wake up after sunset. We find a lot, but amaizing one night because was full of ghost ornate pipe fish!!!!!!
