i need 7 sentences about plant ranking on plants by sand dunes please help me this is due in like 10 minutes i really need help i will give brainleist


  1. Answer:
    Dunes and beaches make up
    nearly 1,800 of the 3,000 miles of
    seacoast in the five Gulf states,
    Georgia, and Puerto Rico. Erosion is
    a problem on about 900 miles of
    Atlantic and Gulf coast dunes and
    beaches in these areas. With the
    right kinds of native and naturalized
    plants, much of this erosion can be
    This publication was written to
    help people select and use plants to
    stabilize and beautify dunes. It is
    intended mainly for planners,
    iandscapers, nursery operators,
    developers, and homeowners. The
    information applies to coastal dunes
    and beaches of Puerto Rico, Texas,
    Mississippi, Louisiana, Alabama,
    Florida, and Georgia.
    Using plants to control dune
    erosion is a high priority of Soil
    Conservation Service (SCS) plant
    materials programs in coastal states
    and the Caribbean Area. From 1973
    to 1975, 191 representative dune
    sites were studied in Georgia,
    Florida, Alabama, and Puerto Rico
    (4, 5, 6, 7, 8V These studies
    identified more than 200 species of
    native and naturalized dune plants
    and were supplemented by less
    detailed studies in Texas, Mississippi,
    and Louisiana.
    Of the plant species identified in
    the SCS field studies, 43 have good
    potential for dune revegctation
    because of their favorable
    characteristics for erosion control,
    their frequency of occurrence, and
    their dominance in the natural
    ecosystem. This publication
    describes each of these 43 plants,
    their areas of occurrence, and
    propagation techniques.
    Ocean waves, littoral drift, and
    other natural forces—as well as the
    activities of people—determine the
    adaptability and suitability of plants
    for coastal dunes. This publication
    explains how the dune ecosystem
    and the actions of people must be
    considered in planning revegetation.
    It also discusses methods of
    preparing the planting site and
    establishing and maintaining the
    SCS has selected some of the
    featured plants for thorough testing
    and comparison. Several years of
    tests and field trials are required
    before SCS and cooperating agencies
    can identify superior plants and
    release approved cultivars. These
    cultivars are the source of
    commercially produced seed and
    planting stock used in local
    conservation programs.
    For further assistance in protecting
    coastal dunes, contact your local
    SCS office, which generally is listed
    in municipal telephone directories
    under “United States Government,
    Department of Agriculture.
