The Jungfrau-Aletsch-Bietschhorn region is the most glaciated part of the European Alps, containing Europe's largest glacier and a range of classic glacial features, and provides an outstanding record of the geological processes that formed the High Alps. A diverse flora and fauna is represented in a range of habitats, and plant colonization in the wake of retreating glaciers provides an outstanding example of plant succession.
The protection of nature and the environment is a major issue in Switzerland and a priority of Swiss foreign policy. This series "Environmental Protection in Switzerland" shows where Swiss environmental policy has been successful, discusses the problems ahead, and describes what the country is doing to meet the challenges of the 21st century.
