Welcome to the International Association for Vegetation Science
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. Toward these ends we hold meetings and excursions, sponsor publications, and provide mechanisms for vegetation scientists to communicate with each other and the world at large.
For more information on IAVS, see our Vision Statement.
