MeSH headings : Animals; Arthropods / physiology; Biodiversity; Cities; Ecosystem; Feeding Behavior; Food Chain; New York City; Solid Waste / analysis; Species Specificity; Vertebrates / physiology
TL;DR: The results suggest that species identity and habitat may be more relevant than diversity for predicting urban ecosystem services, even small green spaces such as street medians that may complement those of larger habitat patches across the urban landscape. (via Semantic Scholar)
