Christine Thuring, PhD candidate in Landscape Ecology (University of Sheffield) and Greenroofs.com contributing editor shares her research. Like vegetation anywhere, green roof vegetation is subject to ecological dynamics and processes. Little work has explored the long-term dynamics of green roof vegetation, however, with more attention on initial establishment and individual species. This research evaluates how vegetation and soils on some of the oldest extensive green roofs (EGR) in southwest Germany have developed since their installation over 20 years ago.
