Urban development, land sharing and land sparing: the importance of considering restoration
At present, there is limited knowledge of how best to reconcile urban development with biodiversity conservation, and in particular whether populations of wild species would be greater under low‐density housing (with larger gardens), or high‐density housing (allowing more area to be left as undeveloped green spaces). The land sharing/sparing framework – originally developed in the context of farming – can be applied to address this question.
