Urban-rural-natural gradient analysis with CORINE data: An application to the metropolitan France
Publication date: March 2018 Source:Landscape and Urban Planning, Volume 171 Author(s): Marco Vizzari, Mohamed Hilal, Maurizia Sigura, Sara Antognelli, Daniel Joly Urbanization and agriculture can be considered as main drivers of landscape change in many parts of the world, including France, producing particular interacting environmental gradients, which in combination with natural components, give rise to the urban-rural-natural (URN) gradient. Along this gradient, many complex transitional landscapes, in which dynamic processes and unstable conditions occur, can be...
Evolving landscape-urbanization relationships in contemporary China
Publication date: March 2018 Source:Landscape and Urban Planning, Volume 171 Author(s): Zhifang Wang The lack of interaction between ecological science and landscape practice has directly contributed to the many challenges related to the unprecedented urbanization of China. However, powerful political support for addressing landscape change with ecological knowledge makes this an opportune time to merge these two approaches. Focusing on the clear and critical knowledge gap regarding landscape–urbanization relationships in contemporary China, this article examines the fundamental...
Examining fear-evoking factors in urban parks in Hong Kong
Publication date: March 2018 Source:Landscape and Urban Planning, Volume 171 Author(s): Bonnie K.L. Mak, C.Y. Jim Understanding fear-evoking factors in urban parks is important for planning and management, but such research is lacking in many cities. This study examined three groups of fear-evoking factors, including inherent park characteristics (IPC), park design and management issues (PDMI), and visitor-related concerns (VC). Besides mainly environmental factors reported in the literature, new ones such as social and personal have been proposed to explore how they may evoke fear...
