Conclusions: The high crude protein and moderate fiber content, along with high IVDMD found in Ammophila arenaria, Trigonella maritima and Vicia monantha, Vicia sativa, Atriplex nummularia, Ononis vaginalis and Lycium shawii suggested that these plants have a greater nutritive value than the highly fibrous and of moderate IVDMD species such as: Lygeum spartum, Lygos raetam, Panicum coloratum, Lolium rigidum, Gymnocarpos decandrum, Deverra trotuosa and Aeluropus lagopoides.

En estos casos, la estabilizacion debe ser realizada con especies de plantas pioneras de la zona y, de no ser posible, se puede utilizar Ammophila arenaria como etapa inicial del proceso, siendo gradualmente reemplazada por otras especies nativas y se debe evitar la plantacion de arboles con el fin de no modificar las caracteristicas del paisaje de dunas.
