Abstract: The Vegetation Database Forests and Grasslands of the Lower Werra Region (GIVD ID EU-DE-011) includes vegetations relevés made within the scope of a project dealing with statistical distribution modelling of land-use types, plant communities and species. The study covers a 10 x 4 km landscape gradient in Northern Hesse. The plots were chosen with a stratified-random design and have a uniform plot size of 100 m² (forests) and 25 m² (grassland), respectively. Apart from numerous site parameters measured in the relevé plots, comprehensive information derived from GIS maps are also available.
