The Editor's Award for 2015 goes to Tomáš Černý for the paper "Classification of Korean forests: patterns along geographic and environmental gradients”

This paper is an excellent example of a modern vegetation survey study including a large original database of vegetation plots analysed with up-to-date analytical methods to achieve the first comprehensive typology of the forest plant communities in the whole Korean Peninsula. The paper of Černý et al. represents one of the first examples of such study in East Asia. Being focused on a forest survey, the paper is certainly more descriptive than purely applied, but the synthetic approach and the broad scale represent a good foundation for management or conservation strategies of the forests in the Korean Peninsula.
