Long-term forest vegetation data from LTER Zöbelboden Austria (1993-2014). Over the 90 ha study area, a rectangular grid of 100 by 100 m with 10x10 m permanent plots at every grid corner and the middle points (totaling to 165, excluding rock outcrops, and young plantations of less than 20 years) was established in 1993. Vegetation resurveys were made in 2005, 2010 and 2014. All vascular plant species occurring at the plots were recorded and their cover was estimated.
