Overview:

IAVS

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. The main goals of the IAVS are to facilitate personal contacts among vegetation scientists all over the world and to promote research in all aspects of vegetation science and its applications.

Vegetation Science is a scientific discipline devoted to study of vegetation at all levels of complexity spanning populations, plant communities and biomes. It attempts to explain vegetation patterns and the processes governing vegetation assembly and dynamics at all temporal and spatial scales. Vegetation Science, as an ecological discipline, is concerned with questions regarding the relationships between plants and all aspects of the environment including human activities. This interest makes Vegetation Science a socially and politically critical discipline serving the good and progress of human society and the sustainable use of its natural resources. Vegetation Scientists cooperate closely with scientists in other disciplines such as paleoecology, geology, soil science, climatology, geomorphology, biogeography, population biology, ecophysiology, and evolutionary biology to enhance integration and progress in science.
