Journal Article
Southon, G., Jorgensen, A., Dunnett, N., Hoyle, H., & Evans, K. (2018). Perceived species-richness in urban green spaces: Cues, accuracy and well-being impacts. Landscape and Urban Planning, 172, 1-10. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.landurbplan.2017.12.002

© 2017 The Authors Evidence that urban green-space promotes health and well-being of urban residents is increasing. The role of biodiversity is unclear: perceived biodiversity may be important, but how accurately it is perceived and the factors influ...

“Not in their front yard” The opportunities and challenges of introducing perennial urban meadows: A local authority stakeholder perspective (2017)
Journal Article
Hoyle, H., Jorgensen, A., Warren, P., Dunnett, N., & Evans, K. (2017). “Not in their front yard” The opportunities and challenges of introducing perennial urban meadows: A local authority stakeholder perspective. Urban Forestry and Urban Greening, 25, 139-149. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.ufug.2017.05.009

© 2017 The Authors The growing evidence base for the benefits for people and wildlife of nature-based solutions to managing urban green infrastructure lacks research investigating land manager perspectives on their implementation. To address this gap... Read More about “Not in their front yard” The opportunities and challenges of introducing perennial urban meadows: A local authority stakeholder perspective.

All about the ‘wow factor’? The relationships between aesthetics, restorative effect and perceived biodiversity in designed urban planting (2017)
Journal Article
Hoyle, H., Hitchmough, J., & Jorgensen, A. (2017). All about the ‘wow factor’? The relationships between aesthetics, restorative effect and perceived biodiversity in designed urban planting. Landscape and Urban Planning, 164, 109-123. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.landurbplan.2017.03.011

© 2017 The Authors Urban populations experience the multiple health and well-being benefits of nature predominantly via urban green infrastructure. If this is to be designed and managed optimally for both nature and people, there is an urgent need fo... Read More about All about the ‘wow factor’?

Attractive, climate-adapted and sustainable? Public perception of non-native planting in the designed urban landscape (2017)
Journal Article
Hoyle, H., Hitchmough, J., & Jorgensen, A. (2017). Attractive, climate-adapted and sustainable? Public perception of non-native planting in the designed urban landscape. Landscape and Urban Planning, 164, 49-63. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.landurbplan.2017.03.009

© 2017 The Authors Throughout Europe climate change has rendered many plant species used in contemporary urban planting design less fit for use in public greenspaces. A growing evidence base exists for the ecological value of introducing non-native s... Read More about Attractive, climate-adapted and sustainable?
