1. Post-doc: Modeling the ability of blue-green infrastructure to enhance urban biodiversity in a current and future climate
This project will use a species distribution model to evaluate the presence of four groups of semiaquatic and terrestrial organisms (dragonflies, grasshoppers, amphibians, and birds) within different types of BGI in Zurich.
2. PhD: Using eDNA to evaluate the effectiveness of blue-green infrastructure on species diversity in Zurich
This project will use eDNA sampling and laboratory analysis to collect new ecological information within BGI in the city of Zurich. This information will be used to update predictions of the effectiveness of BGI to enhance biodiversity.
3. MSc: Ecological Quality of Daylighted Streams in the City of Zurich
This project using field sampling to evaluate the ecological quality of the vegetation within urban streams in Zurich.
