How to ensure that the renovation of a building located in heart of city generates more biodiversity than it destroys?
In town biodiversity should not only be confused with "green" or diversity of plants: it is not the simple multiplicity of plants is desired, but the maintenance of flora and fauna sometimes adapted to the city With their interrelationships, regulations and ecosystem functions useful to man (or well being). These are the species of the ecosystem naturally and normally present on the site in question we seek to preserve when we made a conscious ecological renovation of biodiversity.
The first step is to do an inventory of the existing (flora, fauna living area home), often much richer than previously thought in town.
Interested in urban ecosystems: flora courses and terraces, city birds, plant communities roofs and old walls, cottage for bats.
In the renovation project, the objective is to facilitate the installation or relocation of natural and balanced urban ecosystem (flora, fauna, predators), while avoiding the establishment of opportunistic species (pigeons) .
Accommodate the nature outside of the wall of building
There are aliens among specialized producers of bat boxes, bird fronts and even nesting boxes for insects. But these elements, often handmade and unit (for targeting individuals)
We can enhance this type of facades "green" structures for climbing plants or support for hardy plants cliffs. http://www.leapadaptive.com/
