Abstract

People have been living in the Alps for more than 5,000 years, and the human presence has caused a profound change in environmental conditions. Forests have been chopped down, population centers have formed, and around them are situated areas subjected to cultivation. The stable meadow, which is now an essential part of the Alpine landscape, represents an ecosystem created by humans that was developed to make these mountains inhabitable.
