Summary

Definition of the problem:
In Switzerland, we can state a trend that farmer convert meadows more and more to pastures. What could be the consequences for biodiversity?
Project aims:
Find out in what way biodiversity differs in newly established low-input pastures from high-input pastures.
Analysis of the succession within the first six years.
Methodology:
Analysis of indicator groups in paired pastures – low-input and high input pasture – using pit-fall traps.
Low-input pastures were newly established with different elements (trees, bushes and structural elements)
Results, conclusion, state of the art:
Communities found in low-input meadows were developing differently than in high-input meadows and were more rich in species.

Summary translation

Involved organisations, project partners:
In cooperation with Agrofutura, Frick.
