  1. 1. Managing green infrastructures : trophic interactions in anthropogenic and natural ecosystems

    Författare :Michael Manton; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet; []

    Sammanfattning : The term green infrastructure addresses the spatial structure of anthropogenic, semi-natural and natural areas, as well as other environmental features which enable society to benefit from ecosystems’ multiple services. Focusing on two green infrastructures, anthropogenic wet meadows and natural forest successions, this thesis applies a macro-ecological approach based on comparisons of multiple landscapes as complex social-ecological systems.
