The Dutch Vegetation Database (LVD) hosts information on all plant communities in the Netherlands. This substantial archive consists of over 600.000 recent and historic vegetation descriptions. The data provide information on more than 85 years of vegetation recording in various habitats covering terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems from natural, semi-natural as well as cultural landscapes.

We share our data openly with the philosophy that transparency and sharing are routes for rapid knowledge generation, cooperation, and capacity building. New collaborations are extremely valuable to make the most of the data. Researchers are more thus encouraged to contact the dataset owner to collaborate on joint analyses and meta-analyses.

Registros de Dados

Os dados deste recurso de evento de amostragem foram publicados como um Darwin Core Archive (DwC-A), que é o formato padronizado para compartilhamento de dados de biodiversidade como um conjunto de uma ou mais tabelas de dados. A tabela de dados do núcleo contém 658.800 registros.

This IPT archives the data and thus serves as the data repository. The data and resource metadata are available for download in the downloads section. The versions table lists other versions of the resource that have been made publicly available and allows tracking changes made to the resource over time.

Métodos de Amostragem

More than 600,000 vegetation descriptions are included in this archive using more than 40 different vegetation abundance methods (cover scales). Information about all cover scales can be found here: http://codes.ndff.nl/codes.php?identity=http://ndff-ecogrid.nl/codes/scales/root

Área de Estudo This dataset is an archive of more than 85 years of vegetation descriptions in various habitats in the Netherlands covering terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems from natural, semi-natural as well as cultural landscapes.
Controle de Qualidade The original archive was exported from Turboveg2 in DwC-A format. Data stored in Turboveg ensures that it gets stored in a standard format allowing the data to be easily managed, cleaned, and visualised. It also allows all abundance measurements to be standardised - this archive uses percentage coverage for all species abundance measurements.

Descrição dos passos do método:

  1. All data was imported into Turboveg2.
  2. All data was exported from Turboveg2 in DwC-A format. Turboveg2 ensures the location of threatened species listed on the Dutch Red list are obscured to a level of 5x5 km squares. More information about how Turboveg2 exports to DwC-A can be found in the Turboveg User Manual section 7.24 "Export to Darwin Core Archive": http://www.synbiosys.alterra.nl/turboveg/tvwin.pdf

Metadados Adicionais

The location of plots having at least one threatened species listed on the Dutch Red list have been obscured to a level of 5x5 km squares.

Propósito The Dutch Vegetation Database (LVD) is used for many different purposes, e.g. vegetation classification, species trend analysis, providing distribution maps of plant communities and Natura 2000 habitat types. Part of the database (100.000 plots) is included in the European Vegetation Database (EVA; http://euroveg.org/eva-database).
