In this paper, an interdisciplinary approach to study the links between urbanization and the state of the green infrastructure of the metropolis was used, which indicates the possibility of providing ecosystem services.
This is important for the formation of a better management policy of green urban space for the sustainable development of the metropolis.
- Interdisciplinary approach to study the links between urbanization and the state of the green infrastructure of metropolis.
- Five indicators of urbanization were researched.
- Three most important groups of ecosystem services (ES) were identified quantitatively.
- Further studies are needed on the level of urbanization and the adaptation responses of GI in time and space.
According to the proposed indices, the studied Kyiv Park ecosystems form two large groups – 1) with a significant anthropogenic load and 2) with the best preservation of the forest environment, complex biotic structure.
This paper provides recommendations on the policy of management and preservation of green infrastructure in the context of rapid urbanization, especially on park ecosystems of the second group.
