The introduction of vigorous exotic species has destroyed much of the native sand dune vegetation along the coasts of South Island, New Zealand. However, some dunes built by the native cyperad Desmoschoenus spiralis still remain in the southwest. The dunes at Cole Creek, on the West coast of South Island, were chosen as a relatively pristine Cited by: THE SAND DUNE VEGETATION OF CHRYSTALLS BEACH, SOUTHERN NEW ZEALAND, WITH PARTICULAR REFERENCE TO THE CUSHION COMMUNITY _____ Summary: The sand dune system at Chrystalls Beach, New Zealand comprises front dune, dune hollow and rear dune areas. On the front dunes are two communities: one on the seaward face of the dunes, and another on the. various habitats onthefore dune, sand plain and rear dune. The fore dune This has afairly even height of 10to26ft. above thestrand line,aregular seaward face and along irregular lee slope towards the plains. The profile is characteristic of sand-hills partly stabilised by vegetation but variations are imposed bytheoccupying species (Fig.3).Along.

Paper, poster, exhibit abstracts and field trip notes. New Zealand's third island at the bottom of the South Island. About 85% of the whole island is within the park boundary and it has a unique charm all on its own. Coastal rainforests, freshwater wetlands, sand dunes and granite mountain ranges provide a backdrop for the native wildlife like the kiwi. visitor information» national parks. What are coastal dunes? Coastal beaches and dunes begin with the accumulation of marine sand that is transported to the coast by waves and currents. In the case of dunes, sand is subsequently reworked by strong onshore winds (greater than 5 m/sec) and then deposited behind the beach, principally being trapped in vegetation, but also accumulating at the base of cliffs and hills.
New Zealand coastal sand dune plants. Planting season for dune plants is roughly (depending on which coast) April to October, dune plants can be ordered to secure numbers before planting commences. If ordered before Christmas for the following year there is a price discount, and a discount also applies to those who send their own seed.
