This report is the final deliverable of WP2 and belongs to task 2.3 “Development of a database and typology of BCD of UGI components as grounding knowledge for other parts of the project (WP4-7)”. BCD research in the GREEN SURGE project was simultaneously carried out in five different phases at multiple scales from the local and context-dependent scale (Urban Learning Lab (ULL) cities, see chapter 3.2) to European level analyses of interlinkages between biodiversity and cultural diversity in European cities. Main research phases were 1) conceptual, 2) policy, 3) governance, 4) biophysical environment, 5) people-biodiversity interactions, and, finally, 6) synthesis of all research (Fig. 1.1.1). Milestone 22 (Vierikko et al. 2017) gives an overview of BCD studies conducted in the WP2 and other WPs. The Deliverable 2.3 introduces BCD research made in the WP2 enriched with methodological details and several notes from the researchers of the project (chapters 2-4).
