Urban Ecology

 

Helping people and nature thrive in built environments

Urban ecology helps people and nature coexist in built environments, from individual organisms through to large-scale ecological systems, for more sustainable cities.

Our research impact

We advance urban ecology knowledge of the diversity and distribution of organisms in cities, how urbanisation affects their ecology and the ecosystem processes that sustain them.

We offer governments, building owners, the construction industry and design community smart solutions to help nature thrive alongside humans in different types of green infrastructure such as remnant natural areas, parks, green roofs, home gardens, rain gardens, community gardens and golf courses.
