Our study for the first time investigates phylogenetic community structure of dune plant communities and evaluates the findings in a plant life strategy context. We find that phylogenetic community structure is clustered overall and that disturbance is the main underlying factor causing closely related species to co-occur. The disturbance at least partially reflects anthropogenic influences.
