Keywords: epiphyte; Fagus sylvatica; Germany; nested plot.
Abstract: The database Lübeck Beech Forest Biodiversity Plots (GIVD ID EU-DE-031) was established in 2007 at the Ecology Centre of Kiel University in co-operation with the Lübeck forest administration in the framework of a beech forest biodiversity project supported by the German Environmental Foundation (DBU). Study objects are temperate Central European lowland beech forest of managed and of unmanaged forest stands (since 10 and 50 years). The database contains 86 series of nested plots from 0.0001 to 1,000 m² and geobotanical relevés for the 400 and 1,000 m² plot size. A census was taken for vascular plants, bryophytes and lichens, including epiphytes.
