Abstract In recent decades, agriculture in the Alps has declined in significance. Between 1980 and 2000, 40% of agricultural enterprises in the Alps were given up. Today an average 20–70% of agriculturally usable land lies fallow. The abandoned land tended to be of marginal yield in the subalpine and Alpine area and on steep and inaccessible slopes. In the same period, however, agriculture became intensified and specialized. This often meant the disappearance of traditional cultural landscapes with their small-scale patterns of use. Today monocultures dominate the landscape, be it apple plantations or extensive grassland areas.
