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 habitats that are destroyed or damaged on the ground as a result of development - ecological compensation. The living space on a roof is primarily stamped by the limited water supply, and this leads to the development of green roofs, similar to those found in natural dry regions and habitats, to desert or steppe-like vegetation. These habitats include: riverbank and flood plains with gravel and sand, which are important for bird species that favor gravelly river terraces or open meadows. Post-industrial brown field sites, which are ecologically rich particularly for their invertebrate flora and interesting spontaneous plant communities, and abandoned railway sites, are also important for specialized flora and fauna, for example species living on stony open surfaces with a thin soil layer.
