Climbing plant was an important component in species diversity of tropical forest. Based on the records covering the species composition, the habitat and reproductive habitat information of the climbing seed plant in Karst seasonal rain forest in Nonggang, Guangxi, China and the field survey from 2013-2017, it is confirmed that there are total 333 climbing seed plant in this area, including 126 liana, 86 herbaceous vine and 119 bushy rope. Most of these species flowered from April to September and fruited from July to December. There are 9 fruit types that are berry, samara, drupe, capsule, legume, nut, follicle, achene and seed of gymnospermae, respectively share 36.3%, 15.3%, 13.5%, 12.9%, 10.5%, 7.2%, 1.8%, 0.9% and 1.5% of the whole species. Each species had its own preferred habitat. The dataset is consisted of two parts: (1) data covering species composition, flowering time, fruiting time, fruit types and habitat of climbing seed plants in a karst seasonal rain forest in Nonggang, Guangxi, China, including items of Species name, Family, Genus, Growth form, Flowering time (month), Fruiting time (month), Fruit type, Whether it prefers valley, Whether it prefers slope, Whether it prefers peak; (2) twelve photos in the field survey. The dataset is archived in .jpg, .pdf and .xlsx data format with data size of 75.7 MB (Compressed to one single file with 75.4 MB). The analysis paper based on the dataset was published at Chinese Journal of Plant Ecology, Vol. 41, No.7, 2017.
