Abstract

This research investigates how human disturbance has affected foredune vegetation of the Georgia Sea Islands (GSI) in the United States. Both two-factor analysis of variance, ANOVA, and nonmetric multidimensional scaling, NMS, agree that dunes in human-modified areas have lower dune-grass cover and greater cover of species that are not adapted to building and stabilizing dunes. Therefore, human disturbance may indirectly reduce dune stability by altering the dune vegetation
