Abstract/Contents:"The region of Stuttgart is marked by the presence of modern industries and by rural areas in the outskirts, intensively cultivated with crops and vegetables. The silty loam soils are fertile; the yearly precipitation is 650 mm while the annual average temperature is 9.5 °C. Due to the constantly growing needs of the Stuttgart International Airport and the nearby newly built Stuttgart New Exhibition Centre, vast areas were withdrawn during the last decade from their agricultural use and used for new constructions. As part of the ecological compensation measures adopted to counterbalance the rapid urbanization, an extensive dry-land meadow of 1.8 ha was planned as green roof on top of the multi-storey car park of the exhibition centre, which spans the A8 motor way."
