In 2021, global environmental challenges were at the forefront of our minds. Having finished the first year of the UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration, we are witnessing the predicted effects of anthropogenic climate change around the world. Applied ecological research is more important than ever to develop appropriate management solutions to the wide range of environmental challenges. In this editorial, we take a look at the key issues and topics of interest in Applied Vegetation Science (AVS) over the last five years. Our brief analysis complements and updates information on the major topics from 1998 to 2016 in an earlier editorial (Chytrý et al., 2017) and is parallel to the analysis published simultanously for the Journal of Vegetation Science (Pillar et al., 2022).
We examined the 389 articles published in AVS since 2016 excluding Editorials. We extracted key terms in the titles, abstracts and author addresses. We performed a network analysis using the VOSviewer tool v.1.6.17 (van Eck & Waltman, 2010).
