Just about everywhere in the Nockberge the largest imaginable variety of plants bloom and thrive. The gentle mountain tops, lush meadows and the climate promote bio-diversity. That is why plants as different as the robust Swiss stone pine, the unique Speik flower, as well as a host of small and large specialised plants all grow here. Together they constitute a substructure and habitat for the numerous life-forms of the Nockberge. It is extremely important to treat the fauna with respect, because some of the species are subject to strict nature conservancy.
