"We wanted to understand green roofs as ecological systems that grow in resilience and diversity over time."

– Stephanie Carlisle

How can we predict the future species composition of a green roof, and how does the growth influence building performance?

We surveyed six green roofs and compared the results to each roof's original planting plan. The survey involved a complete analysis of each roof's plant community including species distribution, species richness, and biodiversity.
