Biodiversity Roofs

     

 

Brown/biodiversity roofs serve several functions related to urban biodiversity. They act as stepping stones between nature reserves, such as parks on the edges of cities, and uncolonised habitats in the middle of the city.


They provide a return area for plants and animals that previously inhabited an area that has undergone disturbance and development. They can also serve as permanent substitute habitats for Intervention Rule of the Federal Nature Conservation Act strives to achieve.

Brown roofs can support invertebrates such as bees, beetles, butterflies, moths, earthworms and snails, and vertebrae such as birds.

Creating a biodiversity roof

Biodiversity can be encouraged by maximising structural diversity, varying the soil depth, using native substrates, and growing plant specifies that serve as larval hosts and food plants for insects.

Wild flowers carry a greater biodiversity value for the natural habitat. Varying substrate depths and consistencies will encourage a local habitat.
