NATURAMA lecture Alpine small butterflies
There are around 3800 butterfly species in Switzerland. More than half of them belong to the small butterflies. Many of these species are highly specialized in terms of their habitat and food requirements. Because of their smallness and their enormous diversity, small butterflies are often very difficult to determine. As a result, many species have been insufficiently researched to date. In particular, the distribution and biology of the high alpine small butterflies, some of which occur extremely locally, are often unknown, as are their survival strategies in the harsh mountain climate. While the butterflies in the warm depths of the valleys often produce two generations in one year, the high alpine species usually take two, sometimes more years, for their development from egg via caterpillar and doll to butterfly. In his lecture, Jürg Schmid gives an insight into this hidden but exciting world of living beings that make up an important part of our mountain fauna. | The Auditorium Schlossstall of the Swiss National Park is located right next to the castle. 10 minutes from the train station.
