A framework to integrate multifunctionality analyses into green infrastructure planning
Donnerstag, 01. Juli 2021
Abstract Context Green infrastructure (GI) has become an integral part of the process leading toward urban sustainability because it provides multiple ecosystem services that contribute to urban ecosystems and human health. Planners and managers have therefore attempted to understand and improve GI multifunctionality. Objectives This study has...
Relationships of multiple landscape services and their influencing factors on the Qinghai–Tibet Plateau
Donnerstag, 01. Juli 2021
Abstract Context Constructing a sustainable landscape pattern from the perspective of landscape sustainability is scientifically built on the clarification of the formation mechanisms of landscape services and their relationships. However, the trade-offs and synergies of landscape services have regional heterogeneity, and their influencing factors are largely unknown in polar ecosystem. The Qinghai–Tibet Plateau is a unique...
Assessing impacts of land use policies on environmental sustainability of oasis landscapes with scenario analysis: the case of northern China
Donnerstag, 01. Juli 2021
Abstract Context Oases in China are experiencing large-scale land use/cover change (LUCC), which profoundly affects regional sustainability. To improve sustainability, a series of land-use policies has been implemented. Can these policies effectively promote the sustainable development of oases in China? To answer this question, comprehensively examining the effects of the land-use policies on future LUCC and oasis landscape...
Integrating ecosystem services and rocky desertification into identification of karst ecological security pattern
Donnerstag, 01. Juli 2021
Abstract Context Most researchers focus on the identification of ecological security pattern. However, there is a lack of research on the ecological security pattern of karst fragile area with significant human-land conflict and important ecological shelter function. Objectives The main objectives of this paper were to add the rocky...
Where and how to cool? An idealized urban thermal security pattern model
Donnerstag, 01. Juli 2021
Abstract Contexts Urban green infrastructure (UGI) has been recognized as a promising approach to mitigating urban heat island (UHI); however, most of the previous studies are case-based and explore the effects of the existent landscape and its spatial configuration on UHI mitigation rather than modeling an optimized spatial pattern. Objectives...
Scenario-based ecological security patterns to indicate landscape sustainability: a case study on the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau
Donnerstag, 01. Juli 2021
Abstract Context When setting the goal of landscape sustainability in landscape management, a key theoretical question should be which landscape patterns are more sustainable, whereas there were few studies that further compared optimization scenarios. Objectives This article sought to identify the future scenario of landscape services and the...
Ecological networks in response to climate change and the human footprint in the Yangtze River Delta urban agglomeration, China
Donnerstag, 01. Juli 2021
Abstract Context A continuous increase in human activity and drastic changes in the global climate have aggravated the loss and degree of fragmentation of natural habitats, thereby forcing various species to change their habitats to acquire suitable survival spaces. Objectives To investigate the potential impacts of climate change and human...
Quantitative assessment of demand and supply of urban ecosystem services in different seasons: a case study on air purification in a temperate city
Donnerstag, 01. Juli 2021
Abstract Context For policy makers and scientists to understand patterns of ecosystem services demand (ESd) and supply (ESs) that show a paradox of a compact city, information regarding the balance between ESd and ESs is needed. However, as evaluation of the ESd–ESs balance based on averaged yearly data would minimize the impact of extreme values, the analysis based on seasonal data is important...
Identification of urban flight corridors for migratory birds in the coastal regions of Shenzhen city based on three-dimensional landscapes
Donnerstag, 01. Juli 2021
Abstract Context The rapid urban expansion in southern coastal regions of China can endanger the quality and connectivity of bird habits and thus challenge our capacity for protecting bird species in urban areas. Identifying the ecological corridors that allow migratory birds to and from urban green landscapes is therefore essential for conserving biodiversity in urban areas...
Sustainable land-use optimization using NSGA-II: theoretical and experimental comparisons of improved algorithms
Donnerstag, 01. Juli 2021
Abstract Context United Nations outlined 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), but at the current rate of progress most will not be achieved within the desired timeframe. Since a third of SDGs are directly related to land resources, it is crucial to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of land-use planning. In that regard, there is particular value in algorithmically optimizing land-use planning to better support...
Understanding the importance of landscape configuration on ecosystem service bundles at a high resolution in urban landscapes in the UK
Donnerstag, 01. Juli 2021
Abstract Context Landscape structure is thought to affect the provision of ecosystem service bundles. However, studies of the influence of landscape configuration on ecosystem service trade-offs and synergies in urban areas are limited. This study used Bayesian Belief Networks to predict ecosystem service trade-offs and synergies in the urban area comprising the towns of Milton Keynes, Bedford and Luton, UK...
Integrating regional and interregional approaches to identify ecological security patterns
Donnerstag, 01. Juli 2021
Abstract Context As an important type of sustainable landscape patterns, ecological security patterns focus on the spatial assessment of landscape function importance. However, there is a lack of attention to the scale effect, one of core cognitions of landscape ecology, especially the impact of extent changes on sustainable landscape patterns. Objectives...
Promoting sustainable landscape pattern for landscape sustainability
Donnerstag, 01. Juli 2021
The dynamics of land-sea-scape carbon flow can reveal anthropogenic destruction and restoration of coastal carbon sequestration
Donnerstag, 01. Juli 2021
Abstract Context Coastal zones are a significant coupling landscape and seascape with large global populations and thus have large concentrations of carbon emissions and potential influences on global environmental changes. However, the impacts of coastal seascape pattern change, on the provision of ecosystem goods and services (e.g. carbon flows) have not been understood fully in the face of rapid human-induced changes...
Linking ecological background and demand to identify ecological security patterns across the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area in China
Donnerstag, 01. Juli 2021
Abstract Context Ecological security pattern (ESP) can maintain regional ecological security and thus support sustainable development. ESP should not only protect regional ecological processes, but also meet human demand for ecosystem services. Objectives It is aimed to propose a new method of identifying ecological sources in consideration of...
Measuring ecosystem services based on government intentions for future land use in Hubei Province: implications for sustainable landscape management
Donnerstag, 01. Juli 2021
Abstract Context Exploring how ecosystem service values (ESV) are likely to change based on government intentions to develop and protect land is essential for sustainable landscape management. Objectives (1) Simulate land use change under future baseline (BAS), resource consumption (CON), and resource protection (PRO) scenarios, based on...
Quantifying highly dynamic urban landscapes: Integrating object-based image analysis with Landsat time series data
Donnerstag, 01. Juli 2021
Abstract Context Urban landscapes are highly dynamic with changes frequently occurring at short time intervals. Although the Landsat data archive allows the use of high-density time-series data to quantify such dynamics, the approaches that can fully address the spatial and temporal complexity of the urban landscape are still lacking. Objectives...

Donnerstag, 01. Juli 2021
Abstract Context Relationships between land surface temperature (LST) and spatial configuration of urban form described by landscape metrics so far have been investigated with coarse resolution LST imagery within artificially superimposed land divisions. Citywide micro-scale observations are needed to better inform urban design and help mitigate urban heat island effects in warming climates...
