Clearing and grazing once resulted in a loss of the original wood vegetation and favoured a habitat community that is well adapted to heat and dryness. The open grazing lands ‘Hutweiden’ used to be characteristic features of large regions, today they have shrunk to very small, extremely steep areas. The remaining parts of this historic landscape are particularly rich in species and a refugium for numerous endangered animal and plant species such as the Great Feather-Grass (Stipa pennata), the Hoary Rock-Rose (Helianthemum canum) the False Hellebore, also called Spring Adonis (Adonis vernalis), Burnt Orchid and Military Orchid (Orchis ustulata, O. militaris) as well as Goldilocks Aster (Aster linosyris).
