Stepping-stone city: process-oriented infrastructures to aid forest migration in a changing climate

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter (peer-reviewed)

Abstract

Large-scale urbanisation has posed extreme challenges to the biota of the planet by creating non-permeable barriers to movement, especially in the context of global climate change. From a multi-scale perspective, this chapter discusses the importance of landscape connectivity in facilitating ecological processes and develops a conceptual framework of process-oriented green infrastructures. A study in the Greater Manchester area, UK is used to demonstrate the application of this framework to improve urban landscapes for climate-driven forest migration. The result reveals that the migration process at the metropolitan scale can be facilitated by a large number of stepping stones formed by small landscape interventions at site scales.
