A discussion of linear dynamics and nonlinear evolution of modes belonging to the shear Alfven branch is presented. Attention is focused to the modes which exist near the gap of the continuous spectrum. A discussion of the relative importance of mode-mode coupling, E*B trapping and stochastic losses is also presented.
