Integ­rat­ive and innov­at­ive sci­entific-based research approaches are expec­ted in order to gain an under­stand­ing of biod­iversity pat­terns in cit­ies and other anthro­po­gen­ous sys­tems, of the main drivers of urban biod­iversity change and related eco­lo­gical impacts, of approaches to evid­ence-based nature con­ser­va­tion and plant-related eco­sys­tem ser­vices in anthro­po­gen­ous sys­tems, as well as of the pos­sib­il­it­ies to reduce new envir­on­mental risks from plants.

(2) sci­entific ana­lyses, exper­i­ments and mod­el­ings;
(3) long-term obser­va­tions and time-series ana­lyses;
(4) devel­op­ing inter­faces between plan­ning sci­ences and social sci­ences.
