The Alps are home to a diverse and varied wildlife that has adapted to rugged terrain and extreme altitudes. From the foot of the Alps to its highest peak, Mont-Blanc, wildlife varies with altitude. This mountain range, in the heart of Europe, is the most important urbanized massif in the world, yet it is still rich in biodiversity. Some species are subservient to highland environments, others have been constrained by the pressure exerted by man on their biotopes of origin.
