The study deals with psammophytes and with their effect on the cohesion of sand in sand pits. Cohesion was determined by a Czech modification of the Kacinsky apparatus. It was found that cohesion against compression in sand bases was 7 times that of the cohesion of loose sand. In a sand pit which was not worked for 3 years, the cohesion difference was only 3-fold. The comparision throws light on the cohesive activity of psammophytic plants. Tables of psammophytic plants identified in various sand formations and in dunes indicating their distribution density are presented.
