Abstract:
In this thesis the dunce end vegetation of the Forvie Sends are studied, in an attempt to answer the following questions. First, to what extent can the period, nature, and direction of dune movement fee reconstructed from historical evidence (section III). Second, to what extent can the direction of movement be correlated with local wind regime (Section IV). Third, how do the physical and vegetational characteristics of the present day dunes at Forvie, compare with each other; what conclusions can be drawn from this comparison (Section V) Fourth, what pattern "do the plant communities form. How-Can their zonation and succession be related, both to each other and to habitat conditions, particularly regarding sand movement (Section VII) The answers to these problems raise more general questions regarding dune ecology, and their bearing on certain related areas Is considered also, particularly in Sections IV. V. and VII. These studies are supported by a bibliographical survey (Section I), a general description of the Forvie Sands (Section II), a discussion of dune soils (Section VI); and a survey of dune type and vegetation in Jutland (Appendix).
