This conference is organized in the frame of national habitat mapping program (CarHAB).
This program aims to produce a large scale vegetation map (1:25000) of metropolitan French territory using both dynamical and landscapes phytosociology (i.e. vegetation series and geoseries) approaches.
The first two days of the conference will highlight the diversity of vegetation mapping
methodologies in Europe and France. The different interventions and workshops will be an opportunity to discuss and exchange about mapping methods and applications.
