Description

The data set presents results of the survey conducted in 151 plots located in three topographical positions on inland dunes in the Toruń Basin (N Poland; D – intra-dune depressions: 45 plots, N – north-facing slopes: 53 plots, S – south-facing slopes: 53 plots). In each plot, which covered 400 m2, composition of herbaceous species was determined based on presence/absence (1/0) of particular taxa; furthermore, cover of herb and moss layer was determined using percentage scale. The studied dunes were overgrown with Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris) production mono-stands being at the age from 5 to 161 years.
