The research team took over the organization of 23rd international workshop of the European vegetation Survey, an important annual meeting of researchers in this field in Europe. The workshop was held in Ljubljana between 8 and 12 May 2014 and was attended by over 200 researchers from all over Europe who reported on their research achievements. Together they presented over 80 oral presentations and 100 posters. Organized were group meetings for Red habitats of Europe, EVA & Braun-Blanquet project and meeting of the Nomenclature committee. In addition, we also organized field trips to Kočevski Rog, Krakovski gozd, the Karst and Gorjanci mountain range.

At the European Vegetation Survey meetings we introduced the database EVA (European Vegetation Archive) that unites databases from individual European research institutions from most member countries (http://euroveg.org/eva-database). This includes our database Vegetation of Slovenia (EU-SI-001). This tool enables research at the continental scale, including classification, syntaxonomy, macroecology, red lists.

In the context of monographic presentations of Prekmurje - image of the Pannonian landscape, we prepared an overview of forest vegetation of Prekmurje. This is more or less flat landscape, forest vegetation is preserved in larger surface only sporadically, especially along rivers and in swamp areas and on hilly Goričko. We presented forest vegetation along the river Mura dominated by willows, elms and autumn, swamp forest vegetation in Dolinsko, which is being built by black alder and ash, vegetation on alluvial terraces that build oak and hornbeam and vegetation on the hilly Goričko built by beech and pine.
