Abstract
    During the last few decades coastal dunes, for centuries a distinctive feature of Ravenna’s coastline, have been seriously affected by tourist development and human activities. Considering the importance of these structures as natural defences against beach erosion from sea storms, the main purpose of this work is to characterize the dunes and to reconstruct their recent evolution from both a botanical and a geo-environmental point of view. Another purpose is to evaluate the future natural evolution of dunes in this type of coast.
