Urbanization has caused the loss of ecosystem service quality, which can often be traced back to the loss of biological integrity (including biodiversity). Common property systems i.e collectively managed parks, community gardens, and allotment areas provide today some of the valuable ecological services vital to healthy cities. Traditional diversity measures (e.g. ‘species richness’) may not adequately capture the aspects of biodiversity most relevant to ecosystem stability and functionality, but several new concepts may be more appropriate. These include ‘response diversity’, describing the variation of responses to environmental change among species of a particular community. By analyzing and improving the functional and response diversity of these areas, they could contribute to maintaining optimal ecosystem functionality and developing urban resilience in the face of anthropogenic pressures and environmental uncertainty. It is expected that the student will conduct biodiversity assessments at selected common property systems, analyze selected ecological groups (including vegetation) based on their functional and response diversity, explore and experiment with increasing these diversity aspects at these areas.
