"Rheingraben, Loreley"


Explanation:
The "Rheingraben" is a geological area of the river Rhein with high cliffs and a wide range of interesting geological and botanical features:-
"Amazonas am Rhein?
Sicher nicht, aber an der Loreley gibt es schon einige besondere
Pflanzen und Tiere. Allen voran haben sich hier 9 Orchideenarten
erhalten, die auf die besonderen Verhältnisse am Mittelrhein
hinweisen. Der Rheingraben und seine Seitentäler besitzen auf Grund ihrer Lage und Geologie ein fast mittelmeerähnliches Klima. Dieses Klima begünstigt den Wachstum von besonders wärmebedürftigen Pflanzengesellschaften, die wiederum eine Fülle von Tieren, Insekten und Schmetterlingen beherbergen."
This was taken from the first URL below, the second is a goelogical study in english using the Word "Rheingraben" to discuss the area.
