Distant view, "macro" perspective, walls as a network in the landscape
The dry stone walls form a networking landscape element alongside other landscape structures (hedges, rough pastures, water bodies, etc.).
Criteria for recording and evaluating entire object areas in the overall local ecological context:
- Structural diversity of the object area
Composition of habitat types according to "Delarze + Gonseth, Lebensräume der Schweiz" -> www.infoflora.ch/lebensraeume as well as www.lebensraeume.unr.ch, see Anthropogenic stone corridors (Gives hints)
- Ecological significance of the dry stone wall based on the surrounding wall landscape (stand-alone/only dry stone wall in the area, part of a wall complex of several closely spaced individual walls or retaining walls in a large-scale terraced landscape) (low, medium, high, very high)
- Networking function of the dry stone wall (low, medium, high, very high)
- Quality of connectivity between the individual biotopes and small structures of the project area (low, medium, high, very high)
- Quality of the biodiversity of the object area (low, medium, high, very high)
- Type of zone (spatial planning)
- Ecologically relevant economic implications (e.g. agriculture, transport, special uses)
Inventory inputs and assessments (protective measures).
