Abstract
    Bryophytes and lichens communities growing on nine non-forested coastal dunes along the Atlantic seaboard of France were studied from vegetation surveys during three years. Coastal dune systems provide opportunities for the study of plant successions and colonisation processes. The distribution of species and the relationships between bryophytes and lichens versus pedologic factors has been investigated on 1x1m permanent plots and were analysed by multivariate analyses. This study has shown that the different species are distributed in five groups in the different dune habitats. These groups are composed with several Mediterraneo-Atlantic species which distinguished them from other communities described in bryophytes and lichens successions in Europe. The significative relationships between the five groups and pedologic factors such as pH-water, percentage of total calcium and total nitrogen permit to evaluate the chemical variations of the soil along the dune-transect. The knowledge of relationships between the responses of the species and the abiotic variations of the soil determine functional groups. The monitoring of these functionnal groups is a good tool to understand evolutionary processes of dune-ecosystems and their management.
