Vegetation Section News

Welcome!

The Vegetation Section of the Ecological Society of America seeks to encourage research and foster communication in all aspects of vegetation ecology. To highlight recent high quality research that advances theory, methods, or applications of vegetation ecology, the Section annually gives the Robert P. McIntosh Award to the best nominated paper published in the previous year.

At the ESA Annual Meeting, the Section sponsors symposia, contributed oral and poster sessions, workshops, and field excursions; we also give the Ton Damman Award for the best student oral presentation. 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 combined business meetings and occasional newsletters.
