Dr Lincoln Garland Discusses How Urbanisation Can Benefit Nature
Our Associate Director, Dr Lincoln Garland, has recently had his article 'They Didn't Pave "Paradise", They Ploughed It' published on The Nature of Cities website.
In it, he discusses how the biggest global threat to nature comes not from urbanisation but from the current unsustainable food production system. Instead, he argues, towns and cities can provide ample opportunities for increasing biodiversity with benefits for the environment and humanity.
