Impacts Of Highways On Rural Landscapes In Turkey, Sibel Mansuroglu, Tanay Birisci, Ruya Yilmaz Jan 2016

Impacts Of Highways On Rural Landscapes In Turkey, Sibel Mansuroglu, Tanay Birisci, Ruya Yilmaz

Proceedings of the Fábos Conference on Landscape and Greenway Planning

After being settled, human being developed road networks to provide connection between settlements. Roads are developed with the automobile industry at the beginning of the 20th century. New roads may induce development in previously undeveloped areas, sometimes significantly affecting sensitive environments and the lifestyles of indigenous people. Motor vehicle use has increased rapidly with the result that transportation is now a major source of environmental problems. Human activities within a landscape often result in loss of land cover types, fragmentation of habitats, remaining land cover into smaller and more isolated, disturbing wildlife movements and plants. Transportation decisions affect land use ...


Evaluation Of Parks In Bartin-Turkey: Need For Green Infrastructure Approach, Mustafa Artar Jan 2016

Evaluation Of Parks In Bartin-Turkey: Need For Green Infrastructure Approach, Mustafa Artar

Proceedings of the Fábos Conference on Landscape and Greenway Planning

Due to rapid increase on population and construction for urbanization, cities of 21 century change rapid and dynamically. As the lands in different characters of cities change and spoil the character known is also changing. At this point landscape features which affect the infrastructure within green spaces and waterscapes have important limiting role on urban development. Recent years climate change became an important topic and it brought the discussions on water management and green infrastructure issues. Green infrastructure (GI) approach is a trending subject for experts of urban development, landscape management and urban health. The European Landscape Convention (ELC) seeks ...


Improving The Active Green Space Ratio In Coastal Cities In Turkey, Zerrin Sogut, Sibel Mansuroglu, Tanay Birisci, Ayse K. Onac Jan 2016

Improving The Active Green Space Ratio In Coastal Cities In Turkey, Zerrin Sogut, Sibel Mansuroglu, Tanay Birisci, Ayse K. Onac

Proceedings of the Fábos Conference on Landscape and Greenway Planning

The active green space ratio in urban areas in Turkey has been determined as 10 m2 per capita in accordance with the Construction Law no. 3194. However, this ratio couldn’t be reached in most of the cities on the country scale in Turkey. This ratio of green space in urban areas per capita has been determined as 12,68 m2 for Izmir, and 11,52 m2 for Adana which are the two of the case cities of this study. One of the major factors that effect to reach this standard is the extension of the master plan boundaries. In ...


Spatio-Temporal Characteristics Of Roadside Landscape Components Along The Coastal Zone Between Amasra And Kurucaşile Cities Of Bartın Province, Turkey, Melih Öztürk, Ercan Gökyer Jan 2016

Spatio-Temporal Characteristics Of Roadside Landscape Components Along The Coastal Zone Between Amasra And Kurucaşile Cities Of Bartın Province, Turkey, Melih Öztürk, Ercan Gökyer

Proceedings of the Fábos Conference on Landscape and Greenway Planning

Roads connect populations, societies, cultures and economies (Havlick, 2002; Delgado et al., 2007). They also serve astonishing landscapes for the travelers. Forested rural landscapes along the coastal zones display unique features which vary spatially and temporally (Marsh, 2010). Therefore, the coastal roadside landscape components involving particularly the sea, trees, shrubs, villages and agricultural areas supply recreation for the people who experience this trip. Roadside landscape and scenic quality not only satisfy visual perception of the travelers (Akbar et al. 2003) but also serve for the safe and comfortable travel (Mok et al., 2006; Öztürk and Gökyer, 2015).

Greenways are defined ...


Planning Greenway Alternatives Within The Rural Areas Of Bartın Province, Turkey, Ercan Gökyer, Melih Öztürk Jan 2016

Planning Greenway Alternatives Within The Rural Areas Of Bartın Province, Turkey, Ercan Gökyer, Melih Öztürk

Proceedings of the Fábos Conference on Landscape and Greenway Planning

Recently overall the world, fragmentation in land uses has increased due to the rapid increase in population, urbanization and unplanned development. Fragmented landscapes have less connectivity and greater isolation. On the other hand, species are negatively influenced in a fragmented landscape. Greenway and connectivity are evaluated in landscape ecological studies in order to mitigate negative ecological conditions in urban areas (UN, 2014; Leitao and Ahern, 2002, Linehan et al., 1995). Under these conditions, linear green elements within the rural areas have gained prominence to be considered within greenway planning studies.

Nowadays, rural areas obtain increasing importance. These areas include ecological ...


Engaging Green Infrastructure Scheme Into Watershed- And Urban-Based Planning And Design Realms, Serdar Selim, Adnan Kaplan Jan 2016

Engaging Green Infrastructure Scheme Into Watershed- And Urban-Based Planning And Design Realms, Serdar Selim, Adnan Kaplan

Proceedings of the Fábos Conference on Landscape and Greenway Planning

Watershed planning realm has predominantly been posed by human/urbancentric planning practice solely based on socio-economic dynamics, rather than physical and ecological thresholds at regional level. Thus planning, conservation and management efforts in an individualistic way lack of elaborating natural and cultural landscapes in a holistic way and introducing a monolithic planning and management discourse. This inevitably results in a gap between large scale planning scheme and local plans and, consecutively conservation pursuits both in judicial and administrative spheres remained behind the reach of delivering a comprehensive (conservation) framework.

Based on the aforementioned problematic aspect, the hypothesis that this paper ...


The Importance Of Urban Corridors In Improving The Green Infrastructure In Cities: Case Study Gaziantep-Turkey, Nasim Shakouri, Mehmet Emin Baris Jan 2013

The Importance Of Urban Corridors In Improving The Green Infrastructure In Cities: Case Study Gaziantep-Turkey, Nasim Shakouri, Mehmet Emin Baris

Proceedings of the Fábos Conference on Landscape and Greenway Planning

Rapid urbanization in parallel with population growth is the phenomenon of our century. Urbanization implies great pressure on natural resources and the environment (Rees, 1997; Sandstrom, 2002). Urban growth, by altering cities and the surrounding countryside, presents numerous challenges in urban environment (Tzoulas et al., 2007). As a result of these rapid alterations in urban land use; loss of natural areas, fragmentation of open spaces and degradation of water resources have been occurred over the years. Furthermore, these changes have been influenced the function of ecological services such as provisioning services (e.g. food, fuel, water) to regulating (e.g ...


Green Infrastructure As A Means To Deliver A Multi-Scale Approach For Urban Sustainability, Adnan Kaplan Jan 2010

Green Infrastructure As A Means To Deliver A Multi-Scale Approach For Urban Sustainability, Adnan Kaplan

Proceedings of the Fábos Conference on Landscape and Greenway Planning

A series of economic, ecological, population and institutional constraints have recently produced new challenges and pressures on urban growth and to the management of cities’ critical infrastructures (Hodson and Marvin, 2010). Green infrastructure thereby provides a framework that can be used to guide future growth, land development and conservation decisions to accommodate population growth and protect and preserve community assets and natural resources (Benedict and McMahon, 2006). Key ideas from landscape ecology that are relevant to green urban infrastructure for sustainable cities include: a multi-scale approach with an explicit recognition of pattern-process relationships and an emphasis on physical and functional ...

Greenways And The Urban Form: City Of Ankara, Turkey, Mukerrem Arslan, Emin Baris, Elmas Erdogan, Zuhal Dilaver

Proceedings of the Fábos Conference on Landscape and Greenway Planning

A greenway is a linear open space established along either a natural corridor, such as a riverfront, stream valley, or ridgeline, or overland along a railroad right-of-way converted to recreational use, a canal, scenic rood, or other route. It is any natural or landscaped course for pedestrian or bicycle passage. An open-space connector linking parks, nature reserves, cultural features, or historic sites with each other and with populated areas (Little, 1995; Miller et al., 1998; Viles and Rosier, 2001).

A greenway is a connector; a pattern of protected lands linking other protected lands such as natural features or historic sites ...
