The Vegetation Section seeks to encourage research and foster communication of results in all aspects of vegetation science.

At annualĀ ESA meetings, the Section sponsors symposia, contributed oral & poster sessions, workshops, and field excursions; we also make an award for the best oral paper presented by a student (Ton Damman award). In addition to the annual national meeting we facilitate participation in international vegetation science meetings. The Section coordinates activities with the North American Section of the International Association of Vegetation Science (IAVS), including a combined annual business meeting and occasional newsletter.
