Urban ecosystem services: tree diversity and stability of tropospheric ozone removal

Manes, Fausto; Incerti, Guido; Salvatori, Elisabetta; Vitale, Marcello; Ricotta, Carlo; Costanza, Robert


Urban forests provide important ecosystem services, such as urban air quality improvement by removing pollutants. While robust evidence exists that plant physiology, abundance, and distribution within cities are basic parameters affecting the magnitude and efficiency of air pollution removal, little is known about effects of plant diversity on the stability of this ecosystem service. Here, by means of a spatial analysis integrating system dynamic modeling and geostatistics, we assessed the...[Show more]
