Christian BergThe Editors' Award for 2014 goes to Christian Berg for the paper 'Red Lists and conservation prioritization of plant communities – a methodological framework'. Red Lists of species have long been used as valuable tools for establishing conservation priorities, but only recently has the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) turned its attention to the Red Lists of ecosystems. The methodological framework developed by Berg et al. is perhaps the most elaborated example about Red Lists of plant communities. Suggested approach is optimized for systems of finely defined plant community types. It is therefore attractive especially for nature conservation in Europe and other regions with detailed systems of vegetation or habitat classification.
