Zusammenfassung: 
Pioneer habitats normally are colonized by annual species. But under the condition of extreme factors influencing plant growth, fragmental plant-communities could be built up. At the tidal coast of the East Frisian island, Baltrum, the factors influencing vegetation structure are pointed out. The mechanisms which enable dominating plants Glaux maritima L. and Puccinellia maritima (HUDS.) PARL. to tolerate the stress factors are shown. The phenotypic plasticity of Glaux maritima was mentioned. As the potential vegetation the soil seed bank was investigated.
