Tom Dargie between The Western Isles three-volume report. Sand Dune Vegetation Survey of Great Britain Describes and maps the vegetation communities of sand dunes in Great Britain, using the National Vegetation Classification system. Each volume describes and maps surveyed dune sites, with information on structure, land use and management, and maps of dune type distribution, dune NVC communities, and damage.

The Habitat Map of Scotland (HabMoS) will become the national repository for habitat and land use data. The map adopts internationally recognised data and habitat classification standards. HabMoS is a composite map. It contains data, from many different sources, which have all. The climax vegetation of sand dune succession is deciduous woodland.

No new species are added and the community remains the same over long periods of time (theoretically forever). The vegetation is said to be in equilibrium with the environment; a true state of balance has been achieved. Scotland’s sand dune vegetation has been assessed to investigate species distribution in relation to ecological variables.

The response of the vegetation is modelled to assess if ecosystem processes and species distribution are related to climate. A Survey of the Vegetation of North-west Sutherland. London: Univ. College. Brook, A. J., The phytoplankton of the Scottish freshwater lochs.

The results indicate that there has been a marked reduction in the total area of bare sand (% of the dune system inbut only % in ) and a decline in both the areal extent and the number of dune slacks.

Over the same period of time, there has been an increase in Salix repens dominated habitats, at the expense of pioneer species. sand dune vegetation survey of scotland Scottish Natural Heritage commissioned a complete survey of the vegetation of coastal blown sand deposits in Scotland, mapping National Vegetation Classification (NVC) sub-communities at a scale of (Dargie ).

Sand sedge was intermediate; it could grow up to a certain extent. van Bendegom's second suggestion with regard to land sinking and erosion was also right. The question was one of the balance between the supply of sand and the attrition of the dune by wave action. He could not say what was the effective life of marram grass.

For centuries the exploitation of vegetation in the dune areas of Denmark had helped to create massive movements of sand. In many areas these had become a social catastrophe as the sand covered farmland, fanns, houses, roads and churches.

Inthe country adopted its first Sand Drift Act, in an attempt to prevent the massive movement of sand. The Ardeer Peninsula is a nationally important natural asset.

A recent vegetation survey reported it to have the largest area of acid dune grassland in the UK. By far Ayrshire’s largest dune system, it also contains a wealth of other sand dune habitats, as well as one of North Ayrshire's largest and most biodiverse woodlands.

SAND DUNE MANAGEMENT Dune vegetation restoration Management of sand-dune vegetation is much more concerned with direct human impacts than is that of salt marshes. In contrast to salt marshes, easily accessible sandy shores attract people in large numbers and they can create extensive secondary mobility by trampling out dune vegetation.

Joint Nature Conservation of Vegetation. As sand stops being deposited, Marram Grass will die out. Grey-green lichens (Peltigera, Cladonia) will colonize the dune extensively, combining with accumulating humus to give the dune sand a characteristic dirty grey colour.

Mosses such as Bryum and Sand-dune Screw-moss, Tortula ruraliformis, also colonize the dunes.
