Historische Gärten und Klimawandel

Eine Aufgabe für Gartendenkmalpflege, Wissenschaft und Gesellschaft

Edited by: Reinhard F. Hüttl, Karen David, and Bernd Uwe Schneider

Historical gardens listed as cultural monuments are valuable evidence of our civilization. How can they be preserved under changing climatic conditions? On the basis of four historical gardens, this project analyzes the natural, cultural and social framework in which the "images" of the garden are inscribed. Yet, what courses of action are possible if plants or trees are no longer adapted to the local conditions?

Representatives from the natural and social sciences, the humanities, and historical garden conservation present their first joint solution strategies for the preservation of historical gardens as complete works of art facing climate change.
