Vegetation Database Forests of the Oldenburg Region
Keywords: deciduous forest; NW Germany; Oldenburg; Querco-Fagetea.
Abstract: The Vegetation Database Forests of the Oldenburg Region (GIVD ID EU-DE-010) contains numerous forest releves from the surrounding area of Oldenburg within a radius of ca. 50 km. These relevés originate from several studies conducted by scientists and students of Oldenburg University since 1990. A high proportion of relevés includes information on pH and humus form. The relevés are mostly unpublished but the results have led to several publications especially on the role of pH in shaping floristic patterns of forest communities.
