Gotland is the richest place in the world when it comes to wooded meadows. Traditional management with haymaking and raking for centuries have turned wooded meadows into exceptionally species rich habitats in the agricultural landscape. Since the early 1900’s the area of managed meadows has decreased rapidly. The aim of this study was to investigate if there are differences between continuously managed areas and areas that had been left out, in Lojsta and Gerum on southern Gotland. The results show that there are significant differences in species diversity between the two types of management in both meadows. There was also a relationship between the two parameters temperature and growth. The conclusion of this study is that if it is of interest to conserve wooded meadows with all its species, it is important to continue with the yearly cycle of traditional management.
