The Qinghai Lake Basin is located in northeast of the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau. The biodiversity and species gene pool make it a special region in the world. The vegetation monitoring data at 31 sample sites in 2018 were collected, including the vegetation type, height, coverage, and biomass, number of plant families, genera, and species. The dataset is consisted of: (1) general information and geo-locations of the sample sites; (2) the vegetation type structure of temperate grassland, temperate desert grassland, alpine grassland, temperate desert, mountain meadow, lowland meadow and alpine meadow; (3) the quantity statistics of the main plant families, genera and species of seven zonal vegetation; (4) statistics of vegetation biomass and available biomass in Qinghai Lake Nature Reserve, bird habitat, Przewalski’s gazelle active area; (5) annual comparison of plant structure and biomass of temperate steppe, temperate desert steppe, alpine steppe and temperate desert. The dataset is archived in .shp and .xlsx data formats, and consists of 9 data files with data size of 85 KB (Compressed to two data files with 73.6 KB).
