About this Unit
In 2021, this unit replaced by 102853 - Cool Green Cities. Continued urbanisation and the effects of environmental change exert increasing pressure on urban ecosystems. Yet their functions and services are paramount for liveable, diverse and prosperous cities. This interdisciplinary unit delivers a practical understanding of the bio-physical functions and services provided by urban ecosystems. It will introduce students to bio-physical functions and how they can be measured empirically, using state-of-the-art scientific equipment and tools. As part of the next generation of urban planners and researchers, students will learn how to address complex issues such as sustainable development, urban heat island effects and how to increase green infrastructure in urban environments.
