Opportunities to Design for Positive Conservation Outcomes in Urbanized Areas »

While cities have well-documented negative impacts on the environment, in a recent Bioscience article, Dr. Erica Spotswood, Dr. Myla Aronson, and colleagues identify five pathways by which cities can benefit regional biodiversity. Pathways include release from surrounding pressures, availability of many different habitat types, availability of stopover habitat for migratory species, increased genetic diversity, and opportunity for stewardship and engagement. Considering the positive roles cities can play for biodiversity support can highlight opportunities for urban planning and design to create better cities for people and the environment.

Land Development in New Jersey Continues to Slow

A team of researchers from Rutgers and Rowan Universities have recently completed a study examining New Jersey’s urban growth and land use change over the past three decades. The report notes that the conversion of green space to new urban development has continued to slow from its historic high pace of new urban development in the 1990’s and 2000’s.

This project is a cooperative effort between the Conserve Wildlife Foundation of NJ, Rutgers University, the US Army Corps of Engineers, US Fish and Wildlife Service, and the NJ Division of Fish and Wildlife to improve habitat suitability for endangered beach-nesting birds, especially the Piping Plover.

E&E's Personal Bioblitz Highlighted by JSTOR »

Scientists Nicholas B. Pollock, Natalie Howe, Ivelisse Irizarry, Nicholas Lorusso, Ariel Kruger, Kurtis Himmler, and Lena Struwe suggest that longer-term “personal BioBlitzes” can be beneficial in combating “species blindness” and the lack of awareness of biodiversity, even in heavily urban areas.
