The new issue of JVS contains 16 articles of the Special Feature “Plant dispersal and establishment as drivers of vegetation dynamics and resilience”, edited by Péter Török, James M. Bullock, Borja Jiménez-Alfaro and Judit Sonkoly.

The title picture by Anton Korablev shows the establishment of pioneer plants on a volcanic plateau in Kamchatka, Russia. This place could be visited during the excursion of the 63rd IAVS Symposium in Vladivostok, which had to be cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The picture relates to one of the papers of the Special Feature: Korablev et al. (2020), Plant dispersal strategies in primary succession on the Tolbachinsky Dol volcanic plateau (Russia).
