Potential For Green Corridors Along The Danube River In Novi Sad, Serbia, Ksenija Hiel, Emina Mladenovic, Jelena Cukanovic, Mirjana Ljubojevic Jan 2016

Potential For Green Corridors Along The Danube River In Novi Sad, Serbia, Ksenija Hiel, Emina Mladenovic, Jelena Cukanovic, Mirjana Ljubojevic

Proceedings of the Fábos Conference on Landscape and Greenway Planning

Green corridors are areas or bands that play the role of separating two functionally different areas with natural elements usually different types of vegetation (trees, shrubs, flowers, and grass). Another important feature of green corridors is linking the leafy area into a unique whole. In this case, prevent fragmentation habitat corridors and represented areas in which it can develop biodiversity. If the green corridors are along the banks (lakes, rivers, seas, channels) their importance is increasing. Green corridors that follow the coastline, depending on the types of trees and shrubs may have a significant impact on water levels and groundwater ...


Hybrid Green Corridors In Arid Northern Mexico: Design For A Balance Between Ecological And Non-Motorized Mobility Networks, Gabriel Díaz Montemayor Jan 2016

Hybrid Green Corridors In Arid Northern Mexico: Design For A Balance Between Ecological And Non-Motorized Mobility Networks, Gabriel Díaz Montemayor

Proceedings of the Fábos Conference on Landscape and Greenway Planning

Urban planning in Mexico has been going through intensive updating by the hand of the recently created Municipal Planning Institutes (IMPLANES). These institutes have emerged in the XXI century as a response to the inability to implement medium to long term planning efforts derived from an urban administration model determined by three year municipal government terms with no reelection as an option. Before the emergence of IMPLANES, decisions pertaining urban infrastructure were determined by mayors trying to leverage brief periods of time in the scale of urban administration and planning. IMPLANES have spent a significant part of their efforts updating ...


Concrete Versus Green Corridors In Road Planning. Gdansk Case, Aleksandra Sas-Bojarska, Magdalena Rembeza Jan 2016

Concrete Versus Green Corridors In Road Planning. Gdansk Case, Aleksandra Sas-Bojarska, Magdalena Rembeza

Proceedings of the Fábos Conference on Landscape and Greenway Planning

Urban structures are being increasingly cut by various technical barriers, in particular by the new or modernized roads connections. Their sizes are growing; accompanying infrastructure such as acoustic screens appear. This leads to the disadvantageous fragmentation of the urban tissue. Therefore urban landscape is being deformed. The separated parts of cities are becoming less accessible for residents. The functional, visual, environmental and social problems are growing and the need for solving them becomes essential. The presented article shows the threats and conflicts caused by new traffic systems forming concrete corridors. The possible mitigation methods such as the use of landscape ...

Green corridors have many ecological functions in rural areas. New settelments, not proper turistic activities, cutted forests are represtented only in few examples, which could changed natural refuges and green corridors in rural commune. It is really important to shaping main green corridors includnig big and small natural refuges, which are represented by the forests, small group of trees or manor parks.


Incorporating Wildlife Conservation Within Local Land Use Planning And Zoning: Ability Of Circuitscape To Model Conservation Corridors, Virginia L. Batha, Toru Otawa Jan 2013

Incorporating Wildlife Conservation Within Local Land Use Planning And Zoning: Ability Of Circuitscape To Model Conservation Corridors, Virginia L. Batha, Toru Otawa

Proceedings of the Fábos Conference on Landscape and Greenway Planning

Allocation of our world’s natural resources will become increasingly important as the human population continues to grow. Apportionment is especially imperative when considering the health of wildlife populations’ worldwide (Svoray, Bar, & Bannet, 2005; Theobald, Hobbs, Bearly, Zack, Shenk, & Riebsame, 2000). Efforts to provide basic infrastructure, housing, and food for a growing human population confounds the ability of wildlife to meet their own needs (Lagabrielle, Botta, Dare, David, Aubert, & Fabricius, 2010; Svoray et al., 2005). Previous research indicates that human conversion of native habitat is the leading threat to wildlife in the United States and throughout the world (Lagabrielle et al., 2010; Miller, Groom, Hess, Steelman, Stokes, Thompson, Bowman, Fricke, King, & Marquardt, 2009; Polasky, Nelson, Lonsdorf, Fackler, & Starfield, 2005; Stokes, Hanson, Oaks, Straub, & Ponio, 2009). Habitat conversion of the native landscape often results in the fragmentation of the ...


The Art Of Managing Long And Skinny Places: A Case For Regional Collaboration, Jim Klein Jan 2013

The Art Of Managing Long And Skinny Places: A Case For Regional Collaboration, Jim Klein

Proceedings of the Fábos Conference on Landscape and Greenway Planning

Dollars are disappearing and staff time is diminishing. How can the public landscape thrive in today’s economic climate? It is challenging to cobble together the funding and management support to plan for, build and maintain any kind of “long and skinny place” – whether it be for greenways, blueways, multi-use pathways, community walking paths or heritage touring routes. One way to meet these challenges is to make more efficient use of available resources and strengthen the quality of the user experience by managing linear corridors on a regional basis as a system of greenways, blueways and regional touring routes. Regionalism ...


Optimal Routing Of Wide Corridors, Dana Tomlin Jan 2013

Optimal Routing Of Wide Corridors, Dana Tomlin

Proceedings of the Fábos Conference on Landscape and Greenway Planning

Techniques for tracing minimum-cost routes between nodes in a cost-weighted network have long been used in conjunction with geographic information systems (GIS) to allocate linear features such as roads, pipes, or cables. One of the problems with such techniques, however, is that they regard these features as truly linear in nature: having length but no appreciable width. When siting features such as rights-of-way, wildlife corridors, or greenways that clearly do encompass two significant dimensions, the whole area of each feature must be considered when attempting to minimize cost. Past approaches to the optimal routing of such wide corridors have generally ...
