This dataset includes 336 records of the Spatial location of survy sites for Stipa purpurea grassland on the Tibetan Plateau. Three fields are presented in the dataset, they are species name, longtitude and latitude. Among these records, 69 were gathered by field investigation in 2013, 25 were downloaded from GBIF (, 98 were collected from specimens (, and the others were taken from the published literature (Yue et al., 2014; Liu and Qi, 2015; Liu et al., 2016; Ma and Sun, 2018).
