    About This Project

    JP/EN/CN

    Urban plant diversity can be significantly influenced by socio-economic factors. Based on the "luxury effect", we hypothesize that wealthier Kyoto neighborhoods have higher biodiversity. In this project, I will identify all woody plant in 200 plots in Kyoto to produce a report of the plant diversity. I will also analyze the impacts of socio-economic factors on urban plant diversity to understand if there is a positive correlation between wealthier neighborhoods and plant diversity.
