Powiązania ekologiczne w Łódzkim Obszarze Metropolitalnym
Green areas are one of the key elements of an urban region, however, their functioning is rarely taken under consideration in territorial cohesion analyses. In this article a particular attention was paid to the objects of ecological connectivity, which ensure the duration of natural ecosystems and strongly influ-ence biodiversity. Their structure and spatial extent in Lodz Metropolitan Area and its sur-rounding municipalities were examined, which led to unveiling functional conflicts resulting from improper land development. All those issues were presented in the context of conserva-tion of ecological corridors in Lodz urban region, and the aspiration to create an integrated and territorially continuous ecological system.
