Abstract
    Wet dune slacks are depressions in dune systems which are flooded during winter and most of spring. In these humid depressions, pioneer vegetation has a great conservation value. But, artificial forest composed of non native species can change the hydrological systems with serious consequences for the ecosystems of wet dunes. Management conservation is very important for the preservation of the pioneer communities characterised by a high species diversity.
