Abstract Agriculture has been a driving force in shaping the appearance as well as economic and social developments in the Alps. Until a few decades ago it did not only provide food but also employment and was an important source of income for the population. This changed dramatically from the middle of the 20th century. Today many other services have overtaken agriculture in significance. Precious habitats have emerged solely through agricultural use: wet meadows, oligotrophic grassland, dry grassland, open orchard meadows and larch meadows to name but a few. As long as agriculture remains intact, it ensures the continued existence of a cultural landscape and at the same time serves as prevention against natural hazards and helps contain encroaching settlements.
