Title Anthropogenic influence
Alternate Title Non-grassland Areas in Agricultural Use [33]
Publication Date 2008-04-30
Abstract The Alpine space is a land of meadows and pastures: hardly anywhere else does grassland farming dominate as much as in the Alps today. This is a result of developments on the European agricultural market and a better economic context for the production of milk and meat. Natural location factors, in particular the unfavourable climate conditions and steepness of many areas, limit agricultural productivity. Other forms of agricultural use, particularly arable farming and fruit and wine growing, are only found in favoured regions.
