Urban Environment Project

Biodiversity

Urban biodiversity includes all living things (both plant and animal) that reside in the urban environment. The impacts of a variety of infrastructural developments on urban biodiversity will be explored through enhancing the MOLAND land-use model to include data pertaining to habitats and biodiversity indicators.

Objectives of this sub project include:

  • Acquiring distribution/density data for indicators of biodiversity
  • Identifying key habitat features that retain, enhance or reduce biodiversity
  • Make recommendations for the extent and design of green spaces compatible with different degrees of biodiversity
