Wet meadow areas

The combination of grasses and herbs is particularly significant for biological diversity, as these biotope types are found less and less frequently in the cultural landscape because of intensive use, drainage, or abandonment. Bedding and wet meadows represent valuable habitats for native animal species such as the Lapwing and the Whinchat, as well as for butterflies and grasshoppers. Amphibians, such as the common frog, also use the meadows as a summer habitat, as the moist to wet soil provides a good hiding place.
