Jan  Haft - The Meadow


An excursion to discover a fascinating ecosystem

Grasses brushing your legs, brightly coloured flowers, humming insects: this is what a meadow in summer feels like. In this book Jan Haft takes us on an excursion of discovery to a veritable natural paradise that is the home of hundreds of colourful plants and bizarre animals, many of which have not yet been thoroughly researched. Nowhere else do more insect species live as here, nowhere else is there such a blaze of colour. At the same time, no other regional habitat is as endangered as here: there was a time when approximately one third of our country was covered by meadows in flower. Now it is a mere two percent.

This richly illustrated book with many photographs awakens our enthusiasm for such a vibrant habitat with its rich biodiversity. At the same time it is an appeal for the salvation of the last remaining flower meadows.
