Reports on the revegetation of barrier islands on Santa Rosa Island, Florida after two hurricanes in 1995. The area affected by the storm surge revegetated rapidly due to the high abundance of a few species. One of these species was Panicum amarum, which appeared to grow from fragments dispersed by the sand.
