Name Trails guide provide users through a simple key to help them to identify the plants and animals that they find. Text on the reverse side of the charts provides further information. Splash proof and wipe clean for outdoor use. They are small enough to take into the field as the charts fold to B5 size (approximate size: 240 x 180mm).

From sea spurge to sheep's fescue, from marram to mouse-ear hawkweed, the FSC Sand dunes guide features 43 species of plants found on sandy seashores.

The guide features beautiful colour paintings of each species, arranged by height above sea level, including

  • Strand-line and embryo dune plants, such as sea sandwort and saltwort.
  • Mobile dune plants, such as marram grass and sea holly.
  • Semi-fixed dune plants, such as red fescue.
  • Fixed dune plants, such as creeping buttercup.
  • Dune slack plants, such as creeping willow.

Sand dune plants are generally at their flowering best in early to mid summer. But what if your fieldwork is in spring or autumn? To help we have included a full vegetative key, based on plant shape and leaf characteristics. With this key you can identify sand dune plants even when they are not in flower.

The sand dunes guide is ideal for students who need a quick but reliable key as part of fieldwork on sand dune succession and zonation. The guide is suitable for GCSE and A level fieldwork investigations into a psammosere.
