Description :
Relationships between environmental factors and annual vegetation were investigated in a landscape dominated by linear dunes near Nizzana, Western Negev Desert, Israel. This study had two purposes: to provide data on the magnitude of variation in the stability of the sand along a gradient from a dune crest into the adjacent interdune corridor, and 2) to test the degree to which changes in sand stability and other abiotic factors along such a gradient afffect the distribution and the abundance of annual plants.
