Connection to Health:
As the world’s human population continues to be concentrated in urban environments, more people are becoming isolated from nature. Public greenspaces are often the only contact people have with nature. Psychological benefits also increase with the biodiversity of urban greenspace, therefore the species richness of the greenspace should be considered.
