dc.description.abstractNatural ecosystems in China are being displaced by rapid urbanization. Green spaces and semi-natural areas provide essential ecosystem services that serve needs of both humans and wildlife. Interconnected networks of green spaces conserve ecosystem functions and services, such as wildlife habitat, air filtering, microclimate regulation, and recreational and cultural services. This thesis examines how to improve urban green spaces in Xuchang, China by using suitability analysis and promoting elements of green infrastructure at a variety of scales. Lastly, site designs illustrate the possibilities to apply green infrastructure approaches to Xuchang.
