These systems are adapted to low levels of mineral N availability: increasing the availability of N will threaten the competitive balance between species leading to changes in composition and loss of habitat species constants.
Speeds up succession through the chronosequence, movement between the dune stages.
Lichens and mosses are particularly sensitive both from direct effects associated with N accumulation and from shading as a consequence of increase growth of overstorey vegetation in response to N deposition
