Zusammenfassung: Green roof activities and research in Switzerland have focused for many years on the potential of habitat creation on roof surfaces to compensate for the loss of ground habitats which are destroyed or damaged as a result of constant development. Greening roofs closes an ecological circle, providing nature and environment protection in urban zones with a new chance to improve biodiversity. The ecological effect of a natural roof can only be estimated by taking into account its specific location in terms of the exposed living space, which is important to consider at the beginning while planning the concept and developing the design. It is essential to connect building and constructional issues with basic ecological principles and the quality of the substrate. The main aim of this 3-year (2006-2009) project (funded by the Federal Office for the Environment (FOEN): Ecological compensation on roofs: vegetation and ground-nesting birds) is the development of green roof technologies and systems for ecological compensation.
