About IAVS Journals

Applied Vegetation Science focuses on community-level topics relevant to human interaction with vegetation, including global change, nature conservation, nature management, restoration of plant communities and of natural habitats, and the planning of semi-natural and urban landscapes.

The Journal of Vegetation Science publishes papers on all aspects of plant community ecology. Papers may focus on any aspect of vegetation science ranging from community structure, biodiversity, spatial patterns, temporal changes (including demography, community dynamics and palaeoecology) and processes (including ecophysiology).

Vegetation Classification and Survey publishes papers that develop new vegetation typologies at any spatial and organisational scale as well as applied studies that use such typologies. Methodological studies that design and compare tools for vegetation classification and mapping are particularly welcome. Further, VCS contains Permanent Collections on “Ecoinformatics” and “Phytosociological Nomenclature”.

The International Association for Vegetation Science (IAVS) is a worldwide union of scientists and others interested in theoretical and practical studies of vegetation: its composition and structure, history, classification, distribution, ecology, dynamics, management and uses in the landscape.
