Effects of meadow irrigation on biodiversity

Meadows

Traditional irrigated meadows are a characterstic landscape feature of Southern Palatine. As part of the DBU research project "WasserWiesenWerte" we analyse the effects of meadow irrigation and fertilization on biodiversity. Of special interest is the (functional) diversity of the indicator taxa grasshoppers, butterflies, and carabid beetles.
