Abstract: GrassVeg.DE is a collaborative vegetation-plot database associated with the Eurasian Dry Grassland Group (EDGG). It aims at collecting relevés of grasslands and other open habitats from Germany to safeguard these valuable data and provide them for scientific research, specifically for broad-scale analyses via the European Vegetation Archive (EVA). GrassVeg.DE has Bylaws that ensure a fair balance between the interests of data providers and data users. It is self-governed by an elected Governing Board, Custodian and Deputy Custodian. Founded in autumn 2016, it has now grown to 10,371 plots from all federal states of Germany except two. Currently, the majority of plots are from the four vegetation classes Juncetea maritimi, Festuco-Brometea, Koelerio-Corynephoretea and Molinio-Arrhenatheretea. Interested researchers are invited to join in order to continue the expansion of this database.
