Qinghai Lake Basin is an important natural geographical area in the northeastern part of the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau and the ecological security pattern in Qinghai Province. In August 2021 and August 2022, the authors conducted vegetation survey on 29 sample sites in the Basin. The dataset includes: (1) the geographical location and overview of vegetation surveying sites; (2) the vegetation type structure of temperate grassland, temperate desert grassland, alpine grassland, temperate desert, mountain meadow, lowland meadow and alpine meadow; (3) statistics on the number of plant families, genera and species; (4) vegetation biomass statistics of Qinghai Lake Nature Reserve and Przewalski's antelope activity area; (5) annual vegetation structure and biomass. The dataset is archived in .shp and .xlsx data formats, and consists of 8 data files with data size of 124 KB (Compressed into one file with 102 KB).Browse
