The CBVM is a subgroup of vegetation scientists within the CAFF Flora Group and the International Association for Vegetation Science (IAVS) devoted to mapping the vegetation of the boreal region. Currently, vegetation maps of the circumboreal region exist at a wide variety of scales using many legend approaches. These maps have been developed by numerous authors for a wide variety of disparate applications but are not integrated into a unified system. To fully address the consequences of these conservation and management issues, a circumboreal vegetation map is needed with a unified legend approach.
