Its growth is stimulated by burial under sand and spreads readily via its rhizome root system. These roots further stabilise the soil and increase the dune height. The sand dunes at Portstewart form a series of ridges roughly parallel with the beach. As you cross over the first ridge into the dune slack, the microclimate changes and becomes noticeably more sheltered. This, along with the improving soil quality, allows a wider variety of plant species to grow. At first, mosses grow in the spaces between the marram grass and rosette plants such as dandelions start to appear.

Finally, climatic climax is reached — the final stage of plant succession when the vegetation has reached a balance with its environment. To understand how succession occurs, it is important to realise that various processes of environmental change occur to produce it. These obviously include changes in vegetation, but vital changes also occur in soil and microclimate. g. mosses colonise bare rock). improving the soil conditions by adding organic matter, increasing soil depth, aiding soil moisture retention and changing soil pH.
