VegetWeb – the national online-repository of vegetation plots from Germany
data sharing, ecoinformatics, vegetation database
VegetWeb (GIVD ID EU-DE-013) is an online archive for vegetation-plot data from Germany and can be accessed at the FloraWeb website of the Federal Agency for Nature Conservation (http://www.floraweb.de). The data model of VegetWeb allows up- load, storage and interactive search of plot data with different original formats and taxonomic reference. Due to financial constraints only a small proportion of Germany's legacy of plot data has been captured so far. VegetWeb co-operates with the journal Tuexenia, for which it provides an interactive online archive of relevé tables by capturing and distributing all newly published data.
