Abstract: Mixed evergreen and deciduous broadleaved forests are the most representative vegetation type in subtropical region of China. Based on a long-time litter observation in field sampling plots, the dataset integrated monthly litter recovery amount and annual litter standing crop of the typical mixed evergreen and deciduous broadleaved forests in Shennongjia in the period of 2009-2016, which both comprised branch, leaf, flower and fruit, bark, moss and lichen and other things specifically. Users can search the data according to litter type, time or organs. The setup and data sharing of the database would offer data supports for litter dynamic study of this forest type as well as for litter comparative study among various forest types in the background of global climate change. Additionally, it could also promote the research development on litter and mixed evergreen and deciduous broadleaved forests.
