Folia Geobotanica


Thematic issues ׀ El. Supplementary Mat.

Folia Geobotanica is a scientific journal dealing with plant ecology and systematics. Its primary focus is on contribution to knowledge of plant species and their relationship to its structured environment.
Areas covered by the journal include the following:

  • comparative ecology
  • patterns and processes in vegetation
  • links between systematics and plant ecology
  • experimental taxonomy and biosystematics

Folia Geobotanica publishes papers from both observational and experimental research.

Slavomil Hejný and Jaroslav Moravec established the journal in 1966 (under the name Folia Geobotanica & Phytotaxonomica), in what was then the Institute of Botany of the Czechoslovak Academy of Sciences. From 1994 to 2007 the journal was published by Opulus Press. From 2008 it is published by Springer. The journal quickly found its place in the world of botany and plant ecology. The journal’s international editorial board and demanding admissions process ensure a high-quality publication. Folia Geobotanica also publishes special monothematic editions that often stem from activities at international conferences geared toward a specific problem.
