Abstract: The aeolian sedimentary systems of the Canary Islands have certain natural and socio-economic characteristics that make them differentiated environments, both in the context of the dune fields of Spain and Europe. This is a consequence of their location in intraplate hot spot volcanic islands, their climatic conditions, the high pressure exerted on them by society and the lack of adequate management measures. The relationship between their elements and the continuous change to which they are exposed make them environments with high complexity and fragility. In recent decades, some research lines have been opened around these systems, based on geomorphological, biogeographic, historical, cultural, landscape and socio-ecological analysis. These new approaches have allowed to expand the knowledge about the diversity and complexity of the processes that occur in these systems, as well as to obtain information regarding their management.
