About this book

Language: German

The landscape of the Swiss canton of Zürich has changed significantly over the past 200 years: wetlands have been drained, nutrient-poor meadows fertilized, arable farming intensified, the transport network expanded and large areas developed. The past and present occurrence of plant species testifies to these changes. Of the 1,757 plant species that have been in the canton for a longer period since 1850, 107 are considered extinct and 131 are new residents.

The Flora des Kantons Zürich describes the development of the species with texts, photos and distribution maps. The basis for this is a canton-wide field survey in the years 2012-2017, data from Info Flora (the national organisation Daten- und Informationszentrum zur Schweizer Flora), extensive herbarium and literature evaluations as well as literature research. Around 250 volunteer botany enthusiasts have gathered the majority of the field and herbarium data in a citizen science project led by the Zürcherischen Botanischen Gesellschaft and have contributed new plant photos.

Summary in German:
Während der letzten 200 Jahre hat sich die Landschaft des Kantons Zürich stark verändert: Feuchtgebiete wurden trockengelegt, Magerwiesen gedüngt, der Ackerbau intensiviert, das Transportnetz ausgebaut und große Flächen bebaut. Das einstige und heutige Vorkommen der Pflanzenarten zeugt von diesen Veränderungen. Von den 1757 Pflanzenarten, die seit 1850 im Kanton über einen längeren Zeitraum vorgekommen sind, gelten 107 als ausgestorben und 131 als Neubürger.

Die Flora des Kantons Zürich beschreibt den Werdegang der Arten mit Texten, Fotos und Verbreitungskarten. Grundlagen hierfür bilden eine kantonsweite Felderhebung in den Jahren 2012–2017, Daten von Info Flora (dem nationalen Daten- und Informationszentrum zur Schweizer Flora), umfangreiche Herbar- und Literaturauswertungen sowie Literaturrecherchen. Rund 250 ehrenamtliche Botanik-Begeisterte haben im Rahmen eines Bürgerwissenschaft-Projekts der Zürcherischen Botanischen Gesellschaft den Großteil der Feld- und Herbardaten zusammengetragen und neue Pflanzenfotos erstellt.
