Proceedings of a Symposium, Haamstede, The Netherlands, 1983
`The book is well edited ... and shall be a good guide for researchers not only on coastal vegetation but for allied habitats as well. It should be a valuable addition to the shelf of ecologists.'
`This volume, presented in Junk's usual high-quality style, generally well produced ... many people will use these papers individually, but it is certain that presenting them in a book form increases their value ... this book is a valuable contribution and necessary for anyone working in dune areas. The three editors ... are to be congratulated with this welcome addition to the ecological literature.'
