How does Nature develop without human intervention.

How does Nature develop without human intervention? Research projects and long-term observation programmes allow scientists to understand complex processes more clearly.

Scientists from various research institutes use this unique open-air laboratory to gain further knowledge of the development of Alpine species and changes in their habitats. Minimal human disturbance and the many years of research activity carried out by earlier generations of scientists offer ideal conditions for a variety of research activities.

The National Park has a unique series of data that has been collected over a considerable period, making it a highly attractive research site. The first long-term observation areas were set up in 1917, and since then investigations have been conducted and documented on a regular basis.

National Park field researchers can be easily recognised by their coloured vest, and are always pleased to answer questions and talk about their activities.
