Abstract: Relevés of forest vegetation of Querco-Fagetea and Vaccinio-Piceetea classes were monitored between 1996-2011 in the Moscow region. Natural forests as well as forest plantations of different ages were surveyed. Almost all plots were located by GPS. At present about 750 relevés are available in the database. The Moscow Region Forest Vegetation Database (GIVD ID EU-RU-006) is used for biodiversity analyses, vegetation classification and succession studies.
