Nutcracker and Swiss stone pine are a pair that is often found together. And not without reason: The seeds of the Swiss stone pine are stuck in a cone that – unlike most conifers – does not open by itself. Luckily, there is the nutcracker. In the Alps, the bird feeds mainly on pine seeds and chops up the cones. In autumn, it buries the seeds in the ground as a winter supply. Thus, the nutcracker plays a central role in the spread of the Swiss stone pine. But how harmonious is this close relationship between bird and tree? In her lecture, Eike Lena Neuschulz reports on her research on the coexistence between Swiss stone pine and nutcracker. | The Auditorium Schlossstall of the Swiss National Park is located directly next to the castle. 10 minutes from the train station.
