Research on perceptions of non-native species


This March, Laura Verbrugge (Radboud University) will visit Lincoln University in New Zealand to perform research on perceptions of non-native species in landscape architecture.

This study will compare visions of nature and perceptions of non-native plants in landscape architecture between The Netherlands and New Zealand. Data will be collected by interviewing members of the teaching staff and surveying students of the School of Landscape Architecture (SOLA) at Lincoln University and the five educational programs of the DSL. This project has received funding from the European COST-action framework and is a collaboration with SOLA (prof. Simon Swaffield) and the Bio-Protection Research Centre (prof. Phil Hulme).

The research will be conducted in the period February – April 2017. More information? Please send an email to
