In this vision, campus nature is taken for granted. Intervention takes place only where it is really necessary. Ecological processes such as forest development and natural water management are guiding.
In this vision, campus nature is self-evident. Intervention takes place only where it is really necessary. Ecological processes such as forest development and natural water management are leading. The current mosaic of mixed forest, park forest and grassland will remain. The forest will continue to age over the coming years, dead trees will be included in the cycle and the species diversity will continue to increase under the influence of ecological processes. The transitions from forest to open land are softer, with mantles and hems between forest and grassland. The campus is an important new biotope for animals and plants. A habitat for insects, small mustelids, birds, hedgehogs, amphibians and small rodents. Many rhododendrons gave way to native trees and shrubs.
Existing valuable sparse grasslands and flowery meadows were connected, the areas expanded. Locally, relief has been introduced and sandy areas kept open. Wild bees nest in the soil and, in time, sand lizards will also benefit. Water features are artificial, but they provide ecological diversity. Rainwater infiltrates cleanly into the soil. New and, where possible, existing buildings, host places for building-dwelling species, including various species of bats, swifts and house sparrows.
