About this book

Sand dunes occur throughout the world, from arid desert regions to coastal and lakeshore plains. They are characterized by remarkable structure and patterns and provide habitats for a variety of life. The direction and velocity of winds and the local supply of sand, result in a variety of sand dune shapes and sizes.

This book presents topical research data in the study of sand dunes, including dune ecosystems of the Southern Pampean Coast of Argentina, Aeolian sand dune environments and vertebrate diversity in the Thar Desert of India.
