Sustainability at the University of Bayreuth

Print page


The decline in biodiversity has considerable consequences for human beings. The most serious are probably the reduction or even loss of ecosystem services. As a university, we have an obligation to preserve biodiversity and species diversity on our land.

In cooperation with experts from the University of Bayreuth’s Botanical Garden, a network of nesting boxes and bat boxes as well as two insect hotels are provided on campus. In addition, a coordinated mowing schedule (biodiversity areas twice a year, flowering areas once a year) and the introduction of special flower seeds ensure the improvement of biodiversity.

An insect-friendly exterior design of the BayCEER field office was carried out in 2021. Here, deadwood logs and sand mounds were placed to provide breeding opportunities and plantings of insect-friendly species were made. In addition, the meadows were transformed into flowering meadows. The transformation was carried out with the advice, guidance and assistance of the association "Die Summer e.V.".
