Magnitude and biophysical regulators of methane emission and consumption in the Australian agricultural, forest, and submerged landscapes: a review
Increases in the concentrations of atmospheric greenhouse gases, carbon dioxide (CO2), methane (CH4), nitrous oxide (N2O) due to human activities are associated with global climate change. CO2Expand
Planning for cooler cities: A framework to prioritise green infrastructure to mitigate high temperatures in urban landscapes
a b s t r a c t Warming associated with urban development will be exacerbated in future years by temperature increases due to climate change. The strategic implementation of urban greenExpand
The conservation value of urban green space habitats for Australian native bee communities
The results highlight the need to include urban areas in pollinator conservation initiatives, as providing resources critical to diverse bee communities can assist in maintaining these key pollinators in urban landscapes. Expand
Sieve size effects on root length and biomass measurements of maize (Zea mays) and Grevillea robusta
There was no universal correction for root length and biomass underestimation when large sieve sizes were used because the proportions of lengthand biomass recovered depended on the plant species and on soil depth and distance from the plant. Expand
Quantifying the thermal performance of green façades: A critical review
Abstract Green facades are climbing plants grown either directly against, or on support structures affixed to, external building walls. Like other forms of green infrastructure, they are increasinglyExpand
Soil-atmosphere exchange of carbon dioxide, methane and nitrous oxide in urban garden systems: impact of irrigation, fertiliser and mulch
Urban green spaces provide important ecosystem services, such as amenity, biodiversity, productivity, climate amelioration, hydrological and biogeochemical cycling. Intensively managed urban gardensExpand
Soil–atmosphere exchange of greenhouse gases in a Eucalyptus marginata woodland, a clover-grass pasture, and Pinus radiata and Eucalyptus globulus plantations
Soils provide the largest terrestrial carbon store, the largest atmospheric CO2 source, the largest terrestrial N2O source and the largest terrestrial CH4 sink, as mediated through root and soilExpand
Rainfall interception and stem flow by eucalypt street trees – The impacts of canopy density and bark type
Abstract Understanding how trees influence water movement in an urban landscape is important because in an ‘engineered xeriscape’ small changes in rainfall frequency or magnitude have significantExpand
Soil–atmosphere greenhouse gas exchange in a cool, temperate Eucalyptus delegatensis forest in south-eastern Australia
Abstract Forests are the largest C sink (vegetation and soil) in the terrestrial biosphere and may additionally provide an important soil methane (CH 4 ) sink, whilst producing little nitrous oxideExpand
Temperature and human thermal comfort effects of street trees across three contrasting street canyon environments
Urban street trees provide many environmental, social, and economic benefits for our cities. This research explored the role of street trees in Melbourne, Australia, in cooling the urban microclimateExpand
