Abstract: The structure and composition of boreal forests in Kola Peninsula were investigated between 2005 and 2009. The objective of the research was to reveal the features of spatial distribution of forest types due to natural dynamics and as the result of industrial pollution. The total number of relevés (25x25 m2) was about 350. Using remote sensing data and data of field campaigns allowed estimating the number of species and typological diversity of north-taiga ecosystems in the Imandra lake basin. This report describes the available content in the vegetation-plot database "Database Biodiversity of Murmansk Region" (GIVD ID EU-RU-007).
