If we think about nature conservation or increasing essential ecosystem services we usually think of protected areas, conserving valuable ecosystems such as forest and wetlands, or maintaining rural landscapes.But can cities also help achieving biodiversity goals and targets? The potential of cities to help protect biodiversity and ecosystem services is likely underestimated.
- Is missing knowledge hampering the effectiveness of approaches that aim to restore biodiversity and ecosystem service function and services?
- How can we better integrate research and knowledge on biodiversity and ecosystem services from the global to the European level, and vice versa?
