|IAVS 2014 : 57th Annual Symposium of 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.
Our official aims are:
• to promote research and education in vegetation science
• to promote the publication of research results in vegetation science
• to facilitate scientific and personal contacts among vegetation scientists of all countries
• to promote applications of vegetation science
• to increase awareness of and to disseminate knowledge about vegetation.
The Local Organising Committee is looking forward to seeing you in Australia and proudly showing you around our country. Four excursions flanking the symposium (two in Western Australia, and two on the East Coast featuring New South Wales and tropical northern Queensland) will offer ample opportunity to marvel at the beauty of our plants and vegetation. Come and join us – to push the envelopes of scientific theory, to boost the image of our scientia amabilis, to make new friends and perhaps find a new job or research partner, and at the same time, just to have a hell of a good time.
