Climate Protection and Green Infrastructures in Cities
Climate protection with the help of green infrastructure: How can climate change be countered and the resilience of Bavarian cities in terms of climate change be improved? This is explored through case studies in city quarters and consideration of the interaction of ecosystem services, energy savings at the building and neighborhood level as well as renewable energies.
Application of the Animal-Aided Design Method
The function of cities as a retreat of many animal species is becoming even more important due to climate change. Animal-Aided Design deals with the creation of suitable retreats for species in the context of climate change-oriented planning. This is investigated using practical examples.
City Trees II - City Trees under Climate Change
City trees are an integral part of urban open space. Growth patterns, ecosystem services and the prospects of urban trees in times of climate change are the main issues dealt with in the City Trees II project.
Non-resident and Native Urban Tree Species
Urban climate trees are characterized by high climatic stress tolerance and a higher vitality. The aim of the project is to compare non-resident urban climate trees with their native counterparts in terms of arthropod diversity and vulnerability to pest infestation.
