Studies based on morphometric measurements and population assessment of plants on the dunes of the Polish coast of the Baltic Sea carried out since 1997 indicate that sea holly (Eryngium maritimum) is now an especially rare species in the area. Sea holly, a perennial plant of the pioneer habitats covering coastal dunes, is under legal protection on the Polish coast, but its habitats are slowly vanishing due to storms and human impact.

Key words: dune habitats, Eryngium maritimum, Polish coastal dunes.
