Urbanisation and Biodiversity by Fleur Ellis
This Infographic project reveals the relationship between the population of three cities; Singapore, Hong Kong and Mexico City and the amount of flora species affected by the overpopulation of these cities.
How does urbanisation effect biodiversity?
Imagine you're standing in the centre of a very large city, complete with roads, skyscrapers, traffic noise and pollution. How much wildlife do you see around you? How much biodiversity do you see?
As cities grow, vital habitat is destroyed or fragments into patches not big enough to support complex ecosystems.
This book looks into three cities where population growth has reached alarming levels. This was displayed through the use of pattern infographics, using pull out posters and playful risograph colours. I hope to improve attitudes and understanding of the ecology found in urban areas, if only in a small way.
