Theses to the topic "urban trees"

The Chairs for Strategic Landscape Planning and Management and Forest Growth and Yield Science of the Technical University of Munich cooperate on different research projects about the growth and eco­system services of urban trees to help local authorities in the development of their urban tree inven­tory.

We are offering currently the following topics for theses (Bachelor and Master) working on urban tree research:

1) Cooling, growth and microclimate: evaluation of the measurement series of the tree laboratories

2) Ecosystem services of an urban neighborhood and possible mitigation effects

3) Growth and ecosystem services of the tree population of different cities based on tree cadastre data

4) Growth and ecosystem services of different tree species as a basis for apps

5) Growth and ecosystem services of tree groups depending on spatial structure (tree arrangement, tree dimensions, tree species)

6) Influence of artificial irrigation on growth and ecosystem services of important urban tree species

7) Conifers in the city
