Monitoring Burnet Rose on Les Blanches Banques

Produced by the Environment (Infrastructure, Housing and Environment)
Authored by Penny Anderson Associates Limited and published on 01 Aug 2013
Cost: £1,500.00


​This report was wriitten by Penny Anderson to help establish a monitoring programme for burnet rose (Rosa pimpinellifolia – now R. spinosissima) on Les Blanches Banques sand dunes. There is some concern that the rose is spreading on the dunes and some work is needed to establish the factors that are responsible for this and the outcome from the perspective of the dune’s biodiversity.

The objectives of this report are:
  • concerns that burnet rose is becoming more dominant rather than mixed with a wide
  • range of other species in a diverse community
  • The factors that need to be considered are varied and include the possibility that the rose can tolerate more sand blowing and accumulation than its associated species
  • There is also the possibility of the opposite case whereby the dunes are becoming more stable and the rose isbetter able to grow in these conditions than its co-species
