European Vegetation Survey

European Vegetation Survey (EVS) is a Working Group of the International Association for Vegetation Science (IAVS), uniting plant ecologists interested in vegetation survey and classification in Europe and beyond.

The purposes of EVS are:

  • to develop common data standards in the provision of phytosociological information about vegetation;
  • to encourage national programmes of vegetation survey across Europe and beyond;
  • to develop software and an electronic network for vegetation data exchange;
  • to produce an overview of European vegetation;
  • to organize scientific meetings;
  • to encourage international research collaborations in vegetation survey;
  • to support publications on concepts, methods and results of vegetation survey in Europe and beyond.
