Speaker: Xinyue HU, MSc., Department of Geology and Geography
Topic: „Urban Woodland: Development, Management, and Benefits for Residents
Urban growth has the biggest impact on worldwide development. However, severe challenges such as climate change and urban biodiversity loss, based on rapid urbanization and growing urban population, have affected both the lives of residents and urban nature. Urban woodland, a kind of urban nature, which provides a variety of ecosystem services and plays a vital role in urban green infrastructure. This talk will provide an overview of urban woodland research issues, classify and analyze the main sub-topics and methods, and also highlight the potential prospects of urban woodland study. Furthermore, we will also explore how urban dwellers can profit actually and potentially from urban woodland and how to make effective management strategies of urban woodland.
