Protecting Alpine lakes and fens

Biotopes are generally wet meadows, which are of utmost importance for the survival of certain rare types of animals and plants.

Due to larger amounts of water in the soils and a higher humidity the wet meadows are home to special plant communities such as the wood club-rush, loosestrife and meadow-sweet. As those meadows are considered useless and are endangered by human intervention and modern agricultural practices, it has become necessary to protect them with appropriate laws and rules.

Introduced in 1987, nowadays there are about 70 biotopes spread all over the Trentino region.
