Abstract: The contribution lists all 182 vegetation-plot databases registered in the Global Index of Vegetation-Plot Databases (GIVD) as of 12 July 2012. For each database, the GIVD ID, the proper name, and, where applicable, a descriptive subtitle, as well as the number of non-overlapping plots are given. The databases are arranged by their GIVD ID and grouped according to continents. For each database it is indicated whether it is presented with a Long Database Report, a Short Database Report, or not at all in this volume and the web link where up-to-date metadata are available.
