Embryos are small, mature dunes are bigger and often further inland. They can also have grasses growing in them which makes them more stable

Embryo dunes have a high salinity level and therefore there is less vegetation. Further inland you have mature dunes, where salinity decreases further inshore so as plants die, decompose and release nutrients, new plants can grow making them even more stable.
