Colloquium of the Platform Biodiversity: Species diversity and forage management aspects in moderately species-rich permanent meadows

On the one hand, permanent meadows are habitats for a large number of animal and plant species and, on the other hand, an essential basis for livestock farming. The more intensive the cultivation of the areas, the less biodiversity can be found on them. To understand how exactly fertilization affects the land, a simultaneous study of botanical and forage aspects is necessary. The presentation will present the results of a five-year project that studied the effects of fertilization with manure and slurry in meadows with different species richness.
