Sand bodies of eolian origin, possessing constructional relief and separated from the coast and its dune cordons by nondunal habitats, developed within the boreal, nemoral, steppic, warm - temperate humid, mediterranean or subdesert steppe zones. The vegetation is a mosaic of grasslands, heaths and open areas which differs markedly from coastal sand dune communities. Desert sands are excluded. (Habitat type not yet incorporated into the EUNIS habitats classification)
