Adaptation strategy of annual dune plants

Adaptation strategy of annual dune plants

Verhandlungen der Gesellschaft fur Okologie 10: 485-495

The response of dune annuals from the Dutch coast to different abiotic stress factors (mineral deficiency, drought, burial) was investigated. Different effects on seed ripening, seed dispersal and germination are noted. Due to the deficiency in nutrients, especially nitrogen and phosphorus in dune sand, dune annuals show an efficient internal retranslocation of nutrients from the vegetative to the reproductive organs.
