  • A deep dive into the waterbird community of an urban oasis: implications
           for park management

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract The rapid decline in avifauna populations across North America underscores the urgency of implementing effective conservation strategies. While waterfowl species have generally increased in abundance due to investments in habitat restoration and species management, most other waterbird species have declined. In contrast to the widespread decline of natural habitat for waterbirds, urban greenspaces have proliferated. However, the extent to which urban greenspaces provide habitat for waterbirds is largely unknown. We measured waterbird abundance in Forest Park, Saint Louis, which contains a large expanse of restored waterways. Between 2020 and 2022, we used point counts to quantify alpha and beta diversity of waterbirds across five waterbodies. We also quantified several environmental factors hypothesized to influence waterbird presence including weather, bathymetry, water quality, and prey abundance. We assessed environmental drivers of alpha and gamma diversity using generalized linear mixed models, and beta diversity with Jaccard’s similarity indices and Mantel tests. Water depth and depth heterogeneity were the strongest determinants of alpha diversity. Measured environmental variables did not predict beta diversity but improved model fit when testing gamma diversity. Forest Park is a regionally important urban habitat for waterbirds, hosting 62% (38 species) of the total regional species pool, including nine species of conservation concern and two state endangered species. Urban parks can contribute to waterbird conservation despite habitat loss elsewhere if park managers prioritize habitat restoration. In addition to the total area of waterways, water depth and water depth homogeneity are important considerations to maximize waterbird species diversity in urban greenspaces.

  • High amphibian diversity throughout urban environmental heterogeneity

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Urban growth negatively impacts biodiversity through species loss and biotic homogenization. However, cities continue to grow and there are species with certain functional traits that bypass the urban environmental filters persisting in different urban niches. Our objective was to describe taxonomic and functional groups of amphibians and analyze alpha and beta diversity, relating them to environmental variables that characterize fourteen urban green sites with different types and degrees of urbanization, in the metropolitan area of Santa Fe city, Province of Santa Fe, Argentina. We registered 26 species that belong to 13 genera grouped in 5 families: Microhylidae (1), Odontophrynidae (1), Bufonidae (2), Leptodactylidae (10), Hylidae (12). The fourteen surveyed sites were grouped into five categories with similar urbanistic characteristics. Species richness varied from 4 to 15 species per site and between 12 and 19 species per urban green space category. Species corresponded to 10 functional groups and each urban green spaces categories harbor between 7 and 9 functional groups. Beyond the moderate to low beta diversity values, we found that the different urban green spaces categories are complementary as reservoirs of amphibians, since some categories harbor exclusive species or functional groups, while other urban green spaces categories, without exclusive species or functional groups, shelter numerous populations of some species or functional groups.

  • Diversity of raptors and nest sites characteristics in an urban area in
           Southern Chile

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Urban areas form a complex, heterogeneous, fragmented mosaic of habitats, including ecosystems in different degrees of alteration. Nevertheless, some species of birds of prey can thrive in cities. But, there is a knowledge gap regarding the species of birds of prey that who inhabit the cities in Chile, especially those that reproduce in it. Hence, we work in Valdivia, a city that preserves an important natural matrix. The object of this study was to characterize the diversity, abundance, and nest sites of diurnal and nocturnal raptors in the urban area of a city in southern Chile. Twelve species of raptor were recorded, seven diurnal and five nocturnal, 63.1% of the species expected for neighboring rural areas. Twenty-seven nesting sites were recorded two of diurnal raptors and four nocturnal raptors. The availability of nesting sites close to feeding sites, distance to houses, and grassland-shrub cover are essential factors for the success of raptor populations. Cities like Valdivia could offer suitable nesting sites for reproduction, helping to restore habitats for birds of prey.

  • Greenspaces as shelters for the conservation of bird diversity in a big
           city

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Increasing in human population causes expansion of urban areas, which threatens forest lands and the biodiversity they harbor. Greenspaces act a critical role maintaining bird diversity within urban areas. Here, we evaluated the effect of spatial characteristics of urban greenspaces on bird species richness to identify the role of greenspace design on bird diversity in Mexico City’s Metropolitan Area. We collected data on bird species richness residing in 44 greenspaces and quantified abiotic, biotic and dispersal attributes of each site. These attributes include size, degree of urbanization within and around the greenspace, vegetation cover, distance between sampled greenspaces, distance to nearby greenspace, distance to the closest natural vegetation patch, distance to city center and distance to periphery of the city. We used Generalized Linear Models to determine the effect of spatial characteristics of urban greenspaces on bird species richness. We then built matrices of beta diversity between greenspaces and assessed bird taxonomic dissimilarity via multivariate Bray-Curtis cluster analysis. Our results showed that bird species richness varies between greenspaces. However, species richness was not correlated with spatial characteristics or biotic attributes (P > 0.05), and we only found marginal correlations between built cover within the greenspace and richness of resident species (P = 0.065) and waterbird species (P = 0.070). Taxonomic similarity between greenspaces was correlated with distance between sampled greenspaces (P < 0.05), however, some dispersal attributes showed no significant effect, such as distance to periphery of the city and distance to the closest natural vegetation patch. Our resultssuggest that distances from areas with greater natural vegetation cover to the innermost parts of the city were too short to function as constraints on the ability of birds to disperse to and colonize urban greenspaces. Our study provides further support for the importance of greenspaces as refuges for conservation of bird diversity in urban areas and shows how urban greenspaces are being used by different bird species within a constantly growing urban landscape.

  • Unleashed: walking dogs off the lead greatly increases habitat disturbance
           in UK lowland heathlands

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Human population growth is associated with increased disturbance to wildlife. This effect is particularly acute in urban and periurban areas, where the area of effective disturbance extends beyond that of human presence by the roaming behaviour of pet dogs. Dogs are globally the dominant companion animal, with a population of ~ 12 million in the UK. As urban areas extend, dogs are exercised in green space close to housing. In southeast and southern England these areas include lowland heath, a habitat of high conservation value. To quantify disturbance caused by dog walkers and their dogs, we used GPS units to track the movement of people and their dogs across four lowland heath sites, used a questionnaire to ask about dog walking habits, and mapped potential areas of disturbance caused by dog walkers. Questionnaires were completed by 798 dog walkers and the walks of 162 owners and their 185 dogs were recorded. Mean (± SE) walk time was 56 ± 23 min, walk distance 3.75 ± 1.68 km and dogs were a median distance of 20 m from the owner during walks. Dogs were walked once (44%) or twice (56%) a day. Most (always: 85%; always or occasionally: 95%) dogs were walked off the lead even when signs were present requesting that dogs were kept on a lead. This resulted in up to a 21% increase in reserve area disturbed. In one reserve (Snelsmore Common), > 90% of the area was disturbed by dogs, greatly eroding its conservation value. This work highlights the importance of considering how dog ownership can exacerbate levels of disturbance in sensitive periurban habitats when housing developments are planned.

  • A review on the work of German urban biodiversity networks – from
           national to international activities

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract This review analyses the development of three urban biodiversity networks in Germany since 1970. The first network “Biotope Mapping in Populated Areas” (BMPA) was founded by Herbert Sukopp (Berlin) and the Federal Agency for Nature Conservation in connection with the development of the first comprehensive urban ecology studies in Berlin. The aim was to establish standardized methods for the investigation of urban biodiversity, obtain comparable results on the national level, and exchange information for sustainable development and management in urban areas. From 1979 to 2005 this network held 21 meetings in different German cities and one meeting in Vienna. In 2005, the network merged with the “Competence Network Urban Ecology” (CONTUREC) aiming to link local research and activities both on urban biodiversity and urban ecology. From 2006 to 2011 CONTUREC organized several national conferences, published their results in its own book series, and sent out a newsletter with information to local projects and current international research. With financial support by the German Ministry of the Environment CONTUREC organized in 2008 in Erfurt the first international conference “Urban Biodiversity and Design”. The results were brought to the following up 9th Conference of the Parties (COP) within the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD), which was held in Bonn (Germany) and underlined the urgent need to create an own Major Group for “Cities and Biodiversity”. On this occasion, the “International Network Urban Biodiversity and Design” (URBIO) was founded to promote urban biodiversity and design through a continuing dialogue with the CBD and their partners. This network was following CONTUREC and is organizing international conferences prior to the COP meetings and is exchanging over a newsletter and the website the state on urban biodiversity research and its application. To date, seven URBIO conferences and three URBIO workshops were held, and the results were published in a book and in special issues in international journals. This article describes the development and challenges to run the three different urban biodiversity networks. It gives suggestions for the future based on the experiences done so far.

  • Urban eastern gray squirrels (sciurus carolinensis) show little seasonal
           variation in biochemical and hematological parameters

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Urban wildlife faces unique physiological and behavioral challenges compared to conspecifics which live in less altered natural habitats. Animals in urban habitats are also exposed to urban stressors and commonly make use of inappropriate food sources from trash bins and dumpsters, which may affect their heath status. The goals of this study were to evaluate overall health of an urban population of eastern gray squirrels (Sciurus carolinensis) and to assess seasonal changes in several health parameters. Squirrels (N = 45) were trapped in Durham, North Carolina, USA and briefly anesthetized with inhalant anesthetic for physical examination, body mass collection, and venipuncture via the femoral vein. Collected blood was analyzed for several health parameters via hematology and biochemistry analyses including assessment of lipids and kidney and liver values. Physical examinations were clinically unremarkable and similar across seasons. Females had higher cholesterol values and lower creatinine values compared to males. Seasonal differences occurred in few parameters and were detected only between summer and either fall or spring. Potassium and monocytes were higher in summer compared to spring, and creatinine, BUN and monocytes were higher in summer compared to fall. Overall, health parameters of urban eastern gray squirrels fell within published reference ranges for the species. Together, these results suggest that urban squirrels in this study population can maintain good health in an anthropogenic habitat.

  • Urban ecology of Drosophila suzukii

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Urban environments are vulnerable to the introduction of non-native species and sometimes contribute to their invasion success. Knowing how urban landscape features affect the population dynamics of exotic species is therefore essential to understand and manage these species. The spotted-wing drosophila, Drosophila suzukii, is a highly polyphagous fruit fly that has become a very problematic invasive species over the last decade. Because of its important damage on fruit production, D. suzukii populations have mainly been studied in agricultural areas, while their dynamics in urban landscape remain poorly explored. The objective of this study was to investigate the role of urban environment in the invasion success of D. suzukii by identifying local and landscape factors driving the abundance of the fly along seasons and urbanization gradients. To achieve this, 526 insect traps were randomly set in four different habitats (urban forest, park, riverside and town centre) along an urbanization gradient in the city of Amiens (France), between September 2018 and August 2019. The influence of landscape and local environmental variables on Drosophilidae species diversity and composition was examined using GLM and multivariate analyses. We found that Drosophilidae species richness and abundance were negatively impacted by urbanization. The Drosophilidae community was dominated by D. subobscura and D. suzukii, but their relative abundance varied with seasons. Drosophila suzukii used urban forest during winter and also during heat waves in summer. The fly was still active in this habitat in winter when the ground was covered with snow. The cover of brambles, shrubs, soil litter and dead wood debris were identified as valuable ecological indicators of the presence of D. suzukii. We highlight the role of the different components of urban environment in the ecology of D. suzukii, particularly with regard to its winter survival. These results could serve for designing management strategies in urban habitats in order to reduce the invasion success of D. suzukii. Graphical

  • Are acoustic indices useful for monitoring urban biodiversity'

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Monitoring changes in biodiversity resulting from urban sprawl is an important topic for conservation. Automated biodiversity monitoring methods can quickly collect and process large datasets at minimal cost facilitating effective biodiversity monitoring. Despite being promising, the efficacy of acoustic monitoring in urban areas has not been established. Herein, our aim was to assess the effectiveness of acoustic indices in monitoring urban biodiversity. Thus, we acoustically sampled birds from a large neotropical city (Brasília, Brazil) across a gradient of urbanization. Human identification of recorded species revealed a clear reduction in bird richness in areas of greater urbanization. However, none of the six automated acoustic indices we tested [Normalized Difference Soundscape Index (NDSI), Acoustic entropy (H), Bioacoustic Index (BI), Acoustic Evenness (AEI), Acoustic Diversity Index (ADI), and Acoustic Complexity Index (ACI)], correlate with the degree of urbanization, indicating that these indices may not be a suitable tool for monitoring biodiversity in urban environments. In urban areas, it seems more appropriate to use traditional metrics, that make it possible to accurately identify the heard species. We recommend the need to ground truth the indices and explore alternative acoustic signal’s ability to monitor biodiversity in the complex soundscape of urban environments.

  • City dwellers’ experiences and attitudes towards wild places based
           on an urban river

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract In the context of socio-ecological change, developing people-nature connections in cities could potentially improve city dwellers’ well-being while developing an attachment to other living beings. Increasing wildness by limiting management interventions may promote biodiversity in cities, but little is known about the ways in which city dwellers relate to wild places. In this study, we analyse how city dwellers use and experience an urban near-wild river flowing through the centre of a historic French city. We firstly presented the interweaving of historical cultural components and ecological processes that shaped the river. Based on behavioural mapping and questionnaires, we then investigated three different dimensions of user-river relationships (activities, affects and cognitions) and analysed how they are modulated by individual features. Users’ activities were diverse and spatially related to facilities (i.e. benches, types of ground cover), and they mainly perceived the river as a place of appeasement and relaxation. Wild elements such as birds, flora and water were more notable components of places than historic architectural elements, and users preferred riverbank vegetation with high structural complexity. However, plant and animal species living along the river were not well known. Users’ age and visit frequency were positively correlated with some components of affects and knowledge, but users’ features had only modest explanatory power. The results refine our understanding of city dwellers’ perceptions and attachment to urban wild places, and provide inspiration for designing places that promote biodiversity and enrich experiences of nature in cities.

  • Using ecology-with-cities approaches to guide conservation of urban
           heronries in India

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Heronries are the communal nesting sites of water birds, including herons, egrets and cormorants. As top predators, these birds have crucial food web roles and affect nutrient cycling in aquatic ecosystems. Yet, when they nest in the vicinity of cities, towns, and villages, the public often perceives them as a nuisance. Therefore, effectively conserving such urban biodiversity should consider “ecology with cities” strategies that aim to engage members of the public in ways that assess and develop support and cooperation for protecting species. Using surveys to gather information about local residents’ attitudes toward urban species can be used to advance complementary conservation, education and public engagement goals. Here, we describe efforts to understand local knowledge and attitudes toward participatory conservation of heronries in Northern Kerala, India and use this information to frame and inform conservation policies and management. Among the respondents, more than half were aware that nesting bird populations have been steadily declining (57%) and are legally protected (53%) but a majority of the respondents (65%) believed that these resident heronry birds are migratory. Bird droppings, smell and noise were the reasons for people’s negative attitudes toward the birds. Despite such concerns, most of the respondents (75%) believed that they must be conserved. The major policy outcome of the survey is the recommendation that city authorities should construct physical barriers to alleviate the negative sentiments of the public and consider declaring heronry sites as local heritage sites. Due to a majority of the public being unfamiliar with heronry birds’ status and ecological roles, we recommend increasing awareness among all city inhabitants as an invaluable conservation measure.

  • The noisy neighbor conundrum: what influences the value of urban sites for
           forest birds'

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Birds are a prominent component of urban biodiversity yet many species, particularly forest-dependent birds, are vulnerable to landscape transformation. We examined the relative influence of three factors that potentially influence forest bird communities in residential areas of Melbourne, Australia: (i) local habitat attributes; (ii) types of land use; and (iii) biotic interactions with an aggressive native species, the noisy miner (Manorina melanocephala). We also investigated characteristics of urban sites that contribute most to landscape-level diversity of forest species. We systematically surveyed forest birds at 300 sites in a range of urban land-uses; with sites clustered in 30 landscapes representing gradients in housing cover and tree cover. Composition and richness of forest bird communities differed among land-use types: sites with greater cover of native canopy trees had a distinct and richer avifauna. However, a pervasive influence on communities was the relative abundance of the noisy miner, a native species that aggressively excludes small insectivores. Sites in native vegetation made the greatest contribution to landscape-level richness of forest birds, but also were negatively influenced by noisy miner occurrence. The dominance of the noisy miner poses a challenge for conservation because actions to improve urban habitat for forest species may also benefit this aggressive species. Conservation of forest birds will depend on larger forest tracts, fringing residential areas, which are less suitable for the noisy miner and serve as potential source populations for forest species. Within residential areas, enhancing understorey complexity with native shrubs and mid-storey will help improve urban habitats for forest birds.

  • Perceptions of cultural ecosystem services provision by small public urban
           green spaces: perspectives from different cultural backgrounds

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract With the rise of the ecosystem services concept, urban nature has gained significant value. Numerous studies have been conducted to delineate both the dependent and independent variables to consider when evaluating the regulating, provisioning, and supporting ecosystem services. Concerning the provisioning of cultural ecosystem services, urban green spaces operate in accordance with the ways people engage with them. These interactions are shaped by the design of green spaces and the cultural backgrounds of the population. In this study, we aimed to identify the various interactions between urban residents and specific small public urban green spaces, to evaluate people’s perceptions of the services they offer, and to determine which urban green spaces are deemed suitable by residents for enhancing ecosystem service provision. Employing a comparative approach, we assessed the same green spaces, i.e., pocket parks and street alignments, in the cities of Hamedan (Iran) and Bucharest (Romania), both of which have inhabitants with distinct cultural backgrounds. We administered similar surveys in the two cities and compiled a dataset of the responses. Employing cluster analysis and statistical analysis, we unveiled similarities and disparities in terms of interactions with green spaces in the two cities. Our findings demonstrate that although interactions with the chosen small public urban green spaces are comparable in Hamedan and Bucharest, the desires for future expansion of green spaces differ between the cities. These findings hold importance for practitioners and decision-makers, affirming that universal solutions for managing urban green spaces are non-existent, and that strategies should instead be tailored to the beneficiaries of such spaces.

  • The importance of urban areas in supporting vulnerable and endangered
           mammals

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract The fragmentation of habitats associated with urbanisation poses a significant threat to already vulnerable and endangered mammal species. While the county of Dorset has been identified as one of the UK’s biodiversity hotspots, it is characterised by large-scale urbanisation and intensive agriculture. Focusing on the largest urban area of Dorset—the conurbation of Bournemouth, Christchurch, and Poole—this study aims to investigate the importance of urban areas in supporting vulnerable and endangered mammals by comparing it to four other major land cover categories in the county: arable & horticulture, grassland, woodland, and heathland. The study utilises data collected by the county’s environmental records department through mainly volunteer-contributed ad-hoc sighting data of 10 872 georeferenced mammal records collected between 2000 and 2018. Our findings reveal that, despite having significantly different mammal communities to all other land covers, urban land cover was shown to host four out of five of the vulnerable and endangered species recorded in this study. These included the European rabbit (vulnerable on the IUCN red list), hazel dormouse (vulnerable on the UK red list), West European hedgehog (vulnerable on the UK red list) and European water vole (endangered on the UK red list). Our findings highlight the significance of urban areas as important habitats for mammal biodiversity, presenting an opportunity for the conservation of specific vulnerable and endangered species. Despite limitations in ad-hoc sighting data, our analysis indicates an overrepresentation of certain 'charismatic' species, like foxes and hedgehogs, in urban samples, likely due to their high intrinsic value to the population. While the recognition of urban habitats for 'red list' species is growing, it is also important to acknowledge the relative importance of charismatic species to urban human communities in conservation and management strategies.

  • A multivariate approach for discriminating homegardens in different
           agro-ecological regions

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Though the importance, functions and values of homegardens are well described, the interactive environment and functional features of individual components which vary widely due to agro-ecology, socio-economy and administrative structures are poorly identified. Therefore, the common interventions for improvement often do not result the expected outcome. To fill this knowledge gap, we followed a multidisciplinary approach employing multivariate techniques to identify variables critical in distinguishing homegardens among ecological and administrative units. A homegarden survey was conducted in four districts in Sri Lanka. Present status of the homegardens in different districts were compared and the characteristics important in distinguishing different classifications were identified by discriminant function analysis. Accordingly, most of the variables were important in distinguishing selected districts, climatic zones and Agro-Ecological Regions in the study. When distinguishing Agro-Ecological Regions within districts and climatic zones, fewer number of variables were contributed. The derived variables were utilized in comparing characteristics of homegardens and predicting homegardens. Correspondingly, discrimination of homegardens using climatic zones is recommended at global scale as any region can use this information and required fewer variables than districts. Further, predictions can be accomplished based on discrimination of homegardens using Agro-Ecological Regions within climatic zones at local scale as the spatial-scale specific interventions are possible.

  • Aircraft noise modifies acoustic signals and social interactions of a
           microendemic frog from Mexico City

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Research on urban noises affecting acoustic communication of animals is a growing area of study and conservation concern. However, the consequences of aircraft noise on anuran acoustic communication have been explored on a restricted basis to date. In this study, we investigated the impact of aircraft overflights on the individual and chorus performance of acoustic signalling in the Pedregal frog (Eleutherodactylus grandis), a microendemic and threatened species from Mexico City. During the summer of 2021, we recorded acoustic signals from male individuals and conducted acoustic monitoring to analyse how chorus social interactions change due to aircraft overflights. For this purpose, we evaluated acoustic properties of the call, including call duration, dominant frequency, call amplitude, and call repetition rate. Additionally, we measured the amplitude of environmental noises and signals by means of two types of complementary methodological approaches. Our results show changes in the individual performance of acoustic signals with longer call duration, lower dominant frequency, and higher call amplitude due to aircraft overflights, while individual call repetition rate did not vary. Furthermore, a decrease in the number of calls within the chorus was observed during aircraft overflight. Overall, these results show that aircraft noise causes plastic changes in the acoustic signals of the Pedregal frog and that social interactions between conspecifics decrease, thus adding a new disturbance to this species that already suffers from other anthropogenic noises, and habitat fragmentation.

  • Atta cephalotes (Hymenoptera: Myrmicinae) is colonizing urban areas in
           Cali, Colombia

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Numerous studies have examined the effect of invasive species on biodiversity in urban environments, however, few of them have investigated the role of native species while turning into invasive pests. In Colombia, Atta cephalotes, a native leaf-cutting ant (LCA), has responded successfully to the conversion of natural ecosystems to agricultural-rural environments and, most recently, to residential and urban development. In this study, we illustrate the incidence and distribution of this native ant species in an environment where animal life must face urban disturbs in the physical environment, resource availability, and ecosystem processes associated with human urbanization in Cali, the third most important city in Colombia. For this, A. cephalotes nests were georeferenced in public green areas located in 12 communes across the city of Cali, southern Colombia. Vegetation and soil cover, urban settings, foraging trails and plants foraged by the ants were recorded. A. cephalotes nests were present in all green areas and, even in human dwellings; the ants harvested both native and introduced plant species. Despite being well adapted to strongly modified urban environments, this ant species appears to be dependent on human-subsidized resources. Given the wide distribution of leaf-cutting ants in Latin America, it is plausible to expect that similar processes are underway in other countries where these ants are found. Hence, this study also proposes to alert the academic and social communities to direct future research towards evaluating both the responses and impacts of these ants in relation to changes in the urban landscape.

  • Assessing the state of urban forests in Dédougou, a Sahel city in
           Burkina Faso

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract The composition and diversity of urban forests are gaining attention in scholarly research, urban development, and sustainability efforts. Despite their critical ecosystem services, literature on urban forests remains limited, especially in developing countries like Burkina Faso. This study examines the urban area of Dédougou, assessing species composition, diversity, and structural characteristics across different land-use and land-cover (LULC) types. Botanical investigations were conducted in five of the city’s six sectors, covering administrative, school, residential, and roadside areas. Data, including species, origin, height, and diameter at breast height, were collected from 47 plots (50 m x 50 m) in administrative, school, and residential areas, and 17 plots (50 m x 20 m) along roadsides. A total of 71 species, distributed across 57 genera and 31 families, were identified. Among these, 57% were exotic, 51% were edible, 89% had medicinal properties, and 37% served ornamental purposes. The Shannon diversity index averaged 2.2 ± 0.8. No significant difference was observed in the distribution of exotic and native species across various LULC types. Residential areas exhibited the highest species richness, with 36 exotic and 30 native species, while roadsides had the lowest, featuring ten exotic and eight native species. The findings have implications for United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, particularly Goals 11, 13, and 15. The study concludes that Dédougou’s urban forests are diverse in woody species, particularly in residential areas. This research adds new insights into the floristic diversity and structural characteristics of urban areas in Burkina Faso, offering valuable information for future urban planning and management.

  • The effects of urbanization on functional dispersion of plant reproductive
           traits in Cerrado fragments

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract One challenge of landscape ecology involves understanding the effects of expanded anthropized areas and related land-use changes on species over time. Understanding how floristic composition is shaped in urban and rural environments is a prerequisite for undertaking the development and implementation of conservation strategies in urban areas. We aimed to investigate landscape composition over temporal scales and resultant effects on the functional diversity and species richness of plants in Cerrado fragments. We sampled 18 Cerrado fragments in urban and rural areas of Campo Grande, Mato Grosso do Sul. We compared Functional Diversity indices between urban and rural areas. We evaluated whether species richness and functional dispersion (FDis) are affected by the surrounding matrix at a 1-km radius in different years (1985, 2002, 2018). In total, 123 species were recorded in the fragments, and species richness ranged from 15 to 33 \((\bar S = 24.0 \pm 5.3)\) . Functional richness (FRic) was higher in urban fragments and lower in rural fragments. Land use had no effect on species richness, but functional dispersion was negatively affected by changes in the landscape across time, the loss of green areas from 1985 to 2002, and the expansion of urban areas from 2002 to 2018. Species richness is not a useful metric for understanding the temporal impacts of landscape changes on plants, since plant community dynamics demonstrate an increase in the dominance of species with greater similarity of traits.
