Transcript of Beach Vitex
END Solution Long term effects Species that are effected Short term effects The Beach Vitex plant originated from Asia and was transferred over to North Carolina. The reason why it was brought over was for erosion control. Beach Vitex hasn't been much of a problem
except along the Carolina coast. Some of the short term effects of this species is that
once it spreads it can cover sea turtle nest that can
them to be trapped. Some of the long term effects is that with time it starts to
take over, and starts taking out the native plants that
stabilize the sand dunes. The Beach vitex plant effects sand dune species like
sea oats, railroad vine , shoreline sea purslane, and
sea turtles. North Carolina has a beach Vitex task force that takes care of removing the plant. Once someone spots the plant all they have to do is report it at their website. Erosion is is the process by which soil and rock are removed from the Earth's surface by natural processes such as wind or water flow, and then transported and deposited in other locations.
