Abstract

A general description of Pennington Park is given, and some of the more important environmental factors affecting the plant communities are discussed. The structure, distribution and ecology of the various dune communities, from pioneers to Dune Forest, is given. The importance of Pennington Park as a conservation area is discussed in the light of the paucity of comparable sites and the human pressure on this type of environment.
