How a national vegetation classification can help ecological research and management Article (PDF Available) in Frontiers in Ecology and the Environment 13(May, ) . Plants don't heed boundaries, so plant conservation organizations are more effective when they reach across them. As the recognized leader of native plant conservation in New England, we share valuable expertise, data, and strategies though professional networks at larger scales.
