Ecosystems Services From Large Urban Green Spaces - The Biodiversity And Carbon Benefit Of Urban Golf Courses

Grant number: LP110100686 | Funding period: 2011 - 2014

Completed

Abstract

Golf courses in our cities provide localised cooling, Carbon sequestration and biodiversity habitat benefits. To safeguard these urban green spaces from development these ecosystem services need to be quantified. This project will quantify the Carbon and biodiversity benefit of urban golf courses so that they can be better valued and managed for the future.
