Plain Language Summary
The goal is to present the overall EcoVeg Approach to vegetation classification in detail, and then to present the CNVC and USNVC side-by-side. We’d also like to discuss how together they help provide a North American set of vegetation types within the EcoVeg approach. To do that we’d briefly touch on the “IVC”, including its implementation further south into Central and South America. But the main focus is the side by side comparison of the two country classifications and how the common approach facilitates international communication of ecological information.
