Biodiversity in wilder urban areas

Main area:Ecology
 
Target group:Biology
 
Educational level:Masters, Bachelor
 
Project description:

A recent movement in the management of urban areas such as parks and garden, is to leave them more wild with less traditional management. Particularly the society “Vild med Vilje” have provided a common practice to make these areas more wild. This project will explore the effectiveness of these efforts on biodiversity (e.g. plants or arthropods) by comparing the “wild” areas with neighboring traditionally managed areas.

 
Methods used:Field work; statistics
 
Keywords:Biodiversity, Urban Ecosystems, Nature Management
