Understanding the effects of roadside hedges on the horizontal and vertical distributions of air pollutants in street canyons

Environment International

Built-up environments limit air pollution dispersion in street canyons and lead to complex trade-offs between green infrastructure (GI) usage and its potential to reduce near-road…

Unpredicted ecological and ecosystem services of biodiversity. Spontaneous vegetation, hedgerows, and maple trees as useful landscape components to increase predatory mite population in agroecosystems

Applied Soil Ecology

Rural landscapes have been dramatically simplified and reduced. Large mechanical machinery was adopted and most of the natural helps such as living tutors in the…

Urban hedges: A review of plant species and cultivars for ecosystem service delivery in north-west Europe

Urban Forestry & Urban Greening, Volume 44, 126391

Urban hedges provide a number of important ecosystem services (ESs) including microclimate alteration, flood and pollution mitigation, and biodiversity provision, along with some disservices (DSs,…

Use of hedgerows as a key element of badger (Meles meles) behaviour in Ireland

Mammalian Biology

Human modification of landscapes is one of the greatest threats facing biodiversity worldwide and conversion of native habitat to agricultural land is widely perceived as…

Use of hedgerows by mammals in an intensive agricultural landscape

Agriculture Ecosystems & Environment

Agricultural intensification causes habitat modification, sometimes leading to habitat loss and subsequent loss of connectivity. Remaining species in these agriculture-dominated landscapes often use hedgerows, such…

Using functional traits to assess the role of hedgerow corridors as environmental filters for forest herbs

Biological Conservation

Linear habitats such as hedgerows can constitute important refuges for native flora and fauna, possibly providing connectivity between landscape elements. The effectiveness of these functions,…

Using green infrastructure to improve urban air quality (GI4AQ)

Ambio 49, 62–73

As evidence for the devastating impacts of air pollution on human health continues to increase, improving urban air quality has become one of the most…

Using hedgerow biodiversity to enhance the carbon storage of farmland in the Fraser River delta of British Columbia

Journal of Soil and Water Conservation

Planting hedgerows on farm field edges can help mitigate greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from agricultural landscapes by sequestering carbon (C) in woody biomass and in…

Using hedgerows as model linkages to examine non-native plant patterns

Agriculture Ecosystems & Environment

Non-native plant distribution and community composition, along with an array of environmental factors, were examined in 31 hedgerows, an archetypal class of conservation linkage, in…

Using Malaise traps to assess aculeate Hymenoptera associated with farmland linear habitats across a range of farming intensities

Insect Conservation and Diversity

The intensification of farming practices, along with the loss and fragmentation of semi-natural habitats within agricultural areas, has contributed significantly to insect decline worldwide including…
