Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)

Description: The elegance of classification lies in its ability to compile and systematize various terminological conventions and masses of information that are unattainable during typical research projects. Imagine a discipline without standards for collection, analysis, and interpretation; unfortunately, that describes much of 20th-century vegetation ecology.

Keywords: National Vegetation Classification, vegetation, standard, Federal Geographic Data Committee, geospatial, Vegetation hierarchy
