  • Analysis and Classification of Squares within the Urban Frame of the City
           of Manaus - Amazonas

    • Authors: Brenna Paula Boaventura Corrêa Cavalcanti, Yêda Maria Boaventura Corrêa Arruda, Lúcio Rogério Bastos Cavalcanti

      Abstract: The squares are a strategic place to invest in the afforestation of a city, as they are less confronted with buildings and energy transmission networks, but mainly because they are a place of social interaction and recreational activities. Therefore, knowing its spatial configuration and its access by the surrounding population will allow for better planning by public agencies regarding the implementation, maintenance and floristic composition of the squares. Therefore, the main objective of the study was to analyze the design of squares within the urban frame of the city of Manaus - Amazonas, Brazil. Twenty-four squares were studied through mapping and visual analysis of satellite images from the Google Earth software. Subsequently, the classification according to the type of square proposed by De Angelis and De Angelis Neto (2000) was used. A total inventory of tree specimens (DBH > 10 cm) was carried out, being registered 513 trees distributed in 13 families, 31 genus and 35 species. Of the cataloged species, 51.4% (n=18 species) are classified as exotic to Brazil and 48.6% (n=17 species) are native to Brazil. However, of the 17 native species, 15 are native to the Amazon. The insertion of Manauaras squares in its urban frame is not standardized, so it was necessary to create four subtypes of squares to meet the specific reality of Manaus. It was found that the dominant type of classification of square, regarding insertion in the urban frame, is type 3 (54.2%), followed by type 2 (29.2%) and type 4 (16.6%).

  • Perception of Residents in Manaus on the Urban Afforestation

    • Authors: Yêda Maria Boaventura Corrêa Arruda, Ana Paula Rebouças de Souza, Júlia Pereira de Vasconcelos, David Lopes Neto
      Pages: 21 - 33
      Abstract: The municipal governments, through their Environmental Secretariats, seek to invest in afforestation through public policies, educational campaigns and seedling distribution. However, the actions are inefficient, as studies on afforestation are based on inventories of species planted in public places, few studies seek to understand the population on the subject of afforestation. It is believed that the work of environmental education is of paramount importance. This study aimed to analyze the perception of afforestation of residents from different areas of Manaus, Amazonas state through an interview in the city of Manaus. Most participants were women aged 18-28 years. Most residents have completed primary education. Residents understand what urban afforestation is and the benefits of planting trees can bring, but they are not aware of the most suitable species to be buried in the city.

  • Brazilian National Urban Forest Policy

    • Authors: Daniel Tonelli Caiche
      Pages: 34 - 37
      Abstract: Despite the growing knowledge on the benefits of the Urban Trees, there is a gap related to the dimension related to the dimension of governance, normative instruments and public policies. In an attempt to improve this context, the Brazilian Society of Urban Forest instituted the Urban Forest National Policy Work Group (GTPNAU) inserted in the scope of the Standardization and Certification Brazilian Committee. GTPNAU had as its goal to elaborate a public policy proposal at national level, capable of offering guidelines and instruments, based on principles that acknowledge the urban forest as a public utility service. Another important expected result with the advance of the Brazilian National Urban Forest Policy consists on the understanding of Urban Trees as essential infrastructure for life in cities, on behalf of the several urban stakeholders, public managers, decision makers, real estate investors and companies that provide services; in order to correct the distortions in the urbanization process, that currently transform the green areas in urban cities in something that just a little piece of the population can enjoy which should be available for everyone.

  • Lábrea

    • Authors: Alessandra de Souza Fonseca, Victor Fernandes Queiroz, Antônio Fladsoney Pereira da Silva, João Henrique Lopes da Silva, Mizael Nascimento Rodrigues, Newton Coelho Monteiro
      Pages: 38 - 50
      Abstract: Lábrea, Amazonas, Brazil officially has 64.4% of its public streets lined with trees. However, there is no information available on the qualitative and quantitative aspects of this afforestation. The aim of the study was to inventory the urban afforestation of Lábrea to quantify and qualify the municipal road afforestation. The census of arboreal vegetation on the public roads covered parking lots and areas for pedestrian traffic (sidewalks and curbs) on the streets of the neighborhoods that make up the urban area, being recorded geolocated images of individuals. A total of 507 individuals were counted, distributed in 38 species and 15 botanical families, planting trees in the city’s public streets. The species ficus (Moraceae, Ficus benjamina) and jambeiro (Myrtaceae, Syzygium malaccense) had the highest absolute density. Afforestation is concentrated in the Centro district (50%). Disregarding the neighborhood, the most tree-lined street was October 22nd. The species are partially of native national origin (19 species, 50%), of which 63% are Amazonian (12 species). In absolute terms, individuals are mostly of exotic origin (79%). The individuals are in good structural condition, with type 1 phytosanitary status, located in sidewalks, conflicting or not with the electrical network (413 ind., 81%) without conflicts with the pavement (402 ind., 79%), outside the phenological period. Some common problems already reported also occur in the region. The low diversity of species in afforestation may indicate a certain loss in the quality of the urban physical and environmental structure.

  • Urban Thermal Comfort

    • Authors: Amanda Ramos Goulart, Camila Amaro de Souza, Caio Frederico e Silva
      Pages: 51 - 63
      Abstract: Green infrastructure is presented in several research as an urban strategy necessary to minimize the negative effects arising from the urbanization process and provide outdoor thermal comfort. The urban revitalization project “Reviva Centro”, proposes the increase of vegetation along “14 de Julho” street, located in downtown Campo Grande, Mato Grosso do Sul, Brazil. In this sense, the aim of this study is to compare two scenarios, corresponding to the previous situations and after the implementation of the urban revitalization project. To compare the scenarios, the Envi-met program was used for 3D modeling and microclimatic simulation. The program simulates climatological interactions between surfaces, plants, and atmosphere, considering four fundamental variables of urban thermal comfort (temperature, relative humidity and wind speed and direction). The analysis and visualization of the results is based on the equivalent physiological temperature (PET), that classifies outdoor human thermal comfort conditions. Based on the results of the simulations, the increase in thermal comfort was provided in relation to cold and heat. At 8 am., an air temperature increases of 6 °C, decreasing the discomfort caused by the cold. At 16 hours the comfort gain is obtained by decreasing the air temperature, with a difference of 4.98 °C, optimizing thermal comfort in the scenario that represents the state after revitalization. The results presented in this research show the benefits of urban vegetation as a strategy to balance the urban microclimate and increase comfort for pedestrians.

  • Urban Green Equity

    • Authors: Wanda Maira Muniz Almeida, Eliane Guaraldo
      Pages: 64 - 74
      Abstract: The growing concern with the impacts of climate change and the fast urbanization of cities has led international policies to guide changes in attitudes by governments and civil society, directing effective models of sustainable governance aimed at environmental health and equal access for society environmental benefits. In this study, we seek to understand the evolution of research and scientific production on a topic of great relevance today – green equity. Through scientometric analysis based on a systematic literature review, we analyzed articles published in the period between 1992 and 2021. We used the open source R-tool Biblioshiny, which processes information from academic databases to carry out the analyses. Through this methodology it was possible to identify the main fields of research and relate the results obtained with important historical milestones for sustainable development. We also seek to highlight the evolution of research lines and highlight the significant flows in the global collaboration network. We found that the theme of green equity was driven by international agendas such as the SDG and has been gaining more space in scientific production, linked to a greater variety of issues such as climate change, accessibility to green spaces, ecosystem services, green infrastructure and socioeconomic issues.
