    Abstract : Land use change constitutes a primary driving force in shaping social-ecological systems world wide, and its effects reach far beyond the directly impacted areas. Graph based landscape ecological tools have become established as a promising way to efficiently explore and analyze the complex, spatial systems dynamics of ecological networks in physical landscapes.

  2. 2. Hydraulic Efficiency in Pond Design

    Author : Jesper Persson; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; performance; environmental science; efficiency; numerical modeling; design; hydraulics; pond; wetland; tracer study; preference;

    Abstract : Today there is a growing interest in constructed ponds to treat agricultural runoff, sewage water and stormwater. But ponds not only remove nitrogen, phosphorus and pollutants such as heavy metals; they can also have ecological, social and esthetic values. READ MORE

  3. 3. Rhine cities - urban flood integration (UFI) : German and Dutch adaptation and mitigation strategies

    Author : Cornelia Redeker; V.J. Meyer; Netherlands Delft Department of Urbanism Faculty of Architecture and The Built Environment Delft University of Technology; []
    Keywords : HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; Flood management; Rhine; Germany; Netherlands; Urban Flood Integration; climate change; klimatförändringar; sustainability; hållbarhet; design; design;

    Abstract : Flood Risk Management along the Rhine today combines river expanding measures and adaptive strategies with the existing defensive system to cope with the risk increase as a consequence of previous interventions and developments and fluctuations in water levels due to climate change. Differences in landscapes and urgencies and differences in planning cultures between the Upper and Lower Rhine and the Delta have also led to different strategic approaches. READ MORE

  4. 4. Connecting the dots : Network analysis, landscape ecology, and practical application

    Author : Andreas Zetterberg; Berit Balfors; Ulla Mörtberg; Per-Erik Jansson; Sandra Luque; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; Landscape connectivity; Land-use planning; Urban and regional planning; Graph theory; Network analysis; Environmental assessment; Least-cost modeling; Biodiversity;

    Abstract : Humans have a profound impact on ecosystems, and land-use change constitutes a primary driving force in the loss of biodiversity. Habitat loss and fragmentation are key factors in this process by seriously impeding the habitat availability and movement of species, leading to a significant decrease in population viability.

  5. 5. Urban green networks : a socio-ecological framework for planning and design of green and blue spaces in Sweden and China

    Author : Na Xiu; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet; []

    Abstract : Multi-disciplinary research is needed to address the issue of urban landscape fragmentation. Based on empirical and theoretical context analysis, a framework of network-based, socio-ecological methods and indicators that can be effectively applied by practitioners in different geographical locations was developed in this thesis.
