Abstract

This paper examines the literature on research into the effects of burial by deposition of blown sand, volcanic deposits (tephra, lavas and lahars) or fluvial sediment on vegetation and the subsequent capacity of the vegetation for survival and regeneration. A general model of burial stress is presented that shows how types of stress are linked to the burial environment and the characteristics of the burial event. The significance of burial to paleoenvironmental and paleoecological research is then demonstrated by reference to macahir sand dune stratification in the Outer Hebrides and vegetation damage and burial following proximal volcanic impacts in New Zealand
