Abstract Old vineyards with well structured walls and diverse habitat elements on steep south facing slopes are an important component of the cultural heritage along the river valleys of south-west Germany. Such vineyards provide valuable habitat to many rare and endangered xerothermic plant and animal species (J├Ątzold 1990). They require intensive manual labor as machinery can be used only to a limited extent. As a consequence of the marginal economic benefits, these vineyards are increasingly consolidated leading to structurally monotonous less steep vineyards. This process has led to a considerable reduction and isolation of the remaining valuable habitat and concomittantly to a serious decline of many species.
