Springs are unique ecotones at the interface between surface water and groundwater, which provide relatively constant environmental conditions for their inhabitants. In alpine springs conditions are especially harsh and organisms have to be adapted to low water temperatures and oligotrophic conditions. It is expected that environmental conditions in springs will change owing to Global Climate Change. In order to enable predictions how spring species assemblages could change in future, the implementation of a long-term monitoring of springs in the Swiss National Park and the Unesco Biosfera Engiadina Val Müstair is currently in progress. In the SNP over 40 springs have been systematically investigated in the past years, whereas almost no data exist from the Unesco Biosfera Engiadina Val Müstair. In this project selected springs in the Unesco Biosfera Engiadina Val Müstair will geomorphologically mapped, physico-chemistry will be monitored and faunistic assemblages will be sampled quantitatively and qualitatively. Based on this investigation springs will be selected, which will be suitable for the long-term monitoring project
