About this book

This book deals with the development of temperate coastal sand dunes and the way these have been influenced by human activity. The different states in which the habitat exists both for the beach/foredune and inland dune are reviewed against the pressures exerted upon them. Options for management are considered and the likely consequences of taking a particular course of action highlighted. These options include traditional approaches to the conservation and management of wildlife and landscapes as well as habitat restoration. The way the value of the areas changes under different management regimes is considered mainly from an environmental perspective. Consideration is given to new approaches to management and restoration including adopting a more dynamic approach.

Audience
This book will be of interest to academics, students and professionals concerned with policy formulation and /or actively managing coastal areas.

Reviews

From the book reviews:

“The book focuses on dune systems in the northern hemisphere, with case studies from across Europe and North America, as well as consideration of southern hemisphere analogues. … Each chapter stands alone, with its own reference list, and the text is accompanied by useful color images and diagrams. This book will be a useful reference for professionals working in land management and conservation of sand dunes, as well as students and academics interested in dynamic systems.” (Sarah Taylor, The Bulletin Your Magazine From The British Ecological Society, Vol. 45 (2), June, 2014)
