`This book brings together in one volume techniques for collecting, analyzing, and storing information on the distribution of vegetation on the earth's surface, and even though the book is expensive, it should be on every plant geographer's bookshelf.' C. Pearce, Cartographica, Vol. 26, nos. 3 +  › Life Sciences › Plant Sciences. This chapter discusses the history and development of mapping and classification of vegetation, first describing early mapping efforts of California's vegetation in the late s and in the early   Mapping vegetation can also serve as a monitoring tool if the map is “refreshed” using the same rules applied to the original product. How Mapping and Classification Differ Mapping and classification of vegetation are clearly related; however, they are distinctly different exercises. A classification of vegetation may apply to all stands of This chapter discusses the history and development of mapping and classification of vegetation, first describing early mapping efforts of California's vegetation in the late s and in the early s. It then describes the advances in mapping and classification of vegetation that took place in California. For vegetation mapping, these include the use of satellite-based remote sensing

1. The History Of Vegetation Classification And Mapping In California was published in Terrestrial Vegetation of California, 3rd Edition on page ://   Vegetation classification has a long history, starting in the 19th century, with the work of plant geographers, who described vegetation units using the growth form of their dominant species. During the first half of the 20th century, important developments in taxonomy-based classification GIS-based mapping of vegetation is a broadly established application with strong interconnections with remote sensing, digital surveying and mapping, as well as with more traditional approaches of Eddy van der Maarel is a vegetation ecologist and has made a major contribution to the amalgamation of Anglo-American and European approaches in vegetation science. He is one the founding editors of the Journal of Vegetation Science. He is a member of the Royal Academies of Science of The Netherlands and Sweden and a honorary member of the British Ecological Society, the International

Despite the significant role of vegetation maps in understanding and monitoring patterns of rangeland ecosystems, limited work has been done in mapping rangeland vegetation especially in Africa. In this study, characterisation of vegetation composition and assessment of Landsat ETM+ and IKONOS spectral discrimination effectiveness for mapping rangeland physiognomic vegetation cover types LiDAR has also been used in combination with multispectral data for peatland classification (Maxa and Bolstad, ), mapping peatland condition (Milton et al., ), and for mapping vegetation for ecohydrological classification (Anderson et al., ). Despite the increasing application of LiDAR in the analysis and classification of peatland Brewer C, Bush R, Berglund D et al () Integrating vegetation classification, mapping, and strategic inventory for forest management.

The main goals of the IAVS are to facilitate
