Journal of Vegetation Science

The Journal of Vegetation Science is the official organ of the International Association of Vegetation Science. The journal publishes papers on all aspects of vegetation science, with particular emphasis on papers that develop new concepts or methods, test theory, identify general patterns, or that otherwise are likely to interest a broad readership.


Applied Vegetation Science

Applied Vegetation Science is a formal publication of the International Association of Vegetation Science and is closely linked to the Journal of Vegetation Science. Its scope includes any community-level topics relevant to human impact on vegetation, including global change, nature conservation, nature management, restoration of plant communities and of the habitats of threatened plant species, and the planning of semi-natural and urban landscapes.



In January 2008 the IAVS Executive Committee approved the first formal public Resolution of IAVS. This adoption grew out of a discussion in the Council and General Assembly meetings in Swansea in 2007, and the Executive Committee and Council anticipate adopting future Resolutions as a particularly effective way to honor the aim of the Association articulated in the statutes to ''increase awareness and to disseminate knowledge about vegetation.''
