Federal Inventory of Dry Grasslands of National Importance (FOEN)

Dry grasslands owe their origin to agriculture: they are the result of centuries of extensive cultivation and traditional farming.

Thanks to this great diversity, the habitats are also very important for fauna, for example for insects.
