This research is done on green beaches, sandy beaches where vegetation started to grow and has formed a natural and unique plant community. The sites which were visited were all in the Netherlands. Three islands at the north; Schiermonnikoog, Ameland and Terschelling. The last consisting of two separate sites; Cupidopolder and Groene Strand. The last site was at the west coast; Goeree. On the sites several transects were monitored, a total of 23 transects was monitored in the end. The species that occurred there were species from dune, dune slack and salt-marsh communities. The vegetation is assessed and it is tested how the vegetation composition depends on abiotic factors such as elevation and salinity. Elevation is the most important factor though fresh seepage water causes differences as well. The transects on Goeree and Groene Strand differ from the other transects and have features the other sites do not have.
