Grass and flowers sourced locally

EarthzineEarth Observation

Colourful, low-intensity grasslands do not only look attractive, but also offer valuable habitat for many plants and animals. Yet they have become rare in many places. To create more environments that contain grass and herbs, it is usually necessary to sow plants from the same region as that in which the future grassland will lie. Ecologists from UFZ, Germany, have carried out a joint study with colleagues from other German universities, to investigate this approach.
