Is there more than meets the eye? Seed bank analysis of a typical novel ecosystem, the extensive green roof
It is argued that seed banks can function as biodiversity reservoirs, which can be considered in EGR vegetation restoration if a set of several conditions is fulfilled and provides multiple insights in processes impacting EGR plant species diversity, both on and in the soil. Expand
An evaluation framework for developing green infrastructure by using a new hybrid multiple attribute decision-making model for promoting environmental sustainability
This MADM model is beneficial to provide a more convincing assessment framework and improvement strategies for the development of GI for promoting environmental sustainability and can be shown more conveniently and reasonably than traditional methods such as traditional AHP or ANP method. Expand

Long-Term Ecological Research
Research in ecology has traditionally been funded for short periods of time and performed at single sites, conditions not conducive to projects addressing much greater time and geographic scales.Expand
