Abstract: The Curonian Spit Biodiversity Plots database (GIVD ID EU-RU-009) was established in 2001 at the Ecology Centre of Kiel University in co-operation with the University of Kaliningrad. The database consists of 130 biodiversity plot series of nested plots from 0.0001m² to 900m² for 14 different vegetation types of the Curonian Spit Nationalpark. The focus was the census of vascular plants, bryophytes and lichens, including epiphytes for the analysis of species richness of different plant communities. Geobotanical relevés are available for the 900 m² plots.
