Urban and suburban parks can have a high biodiversity due to the presence of a lot of indigenous and naturalised species from (semi-)natural communities as well as exotic species, and the diversity of park habitats (forests, pastures, ponds, gardens, ...). In an earlier project we developed a method to measure this biological diversity in the form of some biodiversity indicators (see Hermy & Cornelis, 2000). The aims of this project are the measurement of the biodiversity in 12 different parks managed by the Forest and Green Spaces Division using the earlier developed method and the comparative interpretation of the results.
