There are standard rules for placement of plots, size of plots and data to be collected. Standard forms were used to minimize drift in field methods. Any large new initiative would be well advised to adopt the level of standardization employed in the UK NVC, and small programmes should adopt methods and goals consistent with well-established programmes in order to maximize compatibility. The Braun-Blanquet, British and US initiatives all have their own standard nomenclatures, although the formats and rules vary considerably between the systems.
