Accessing the Urbanization Impacts on Township Environment in Semi-Arid Region of Northwest China by Multi-Disciplined Methods
The process of urbanization has significant and various impacts on the environment of the earth, either positive or negative. In this paper, multi-disciplined methods such as GIS and bird survey were used to monitor the landscape change and ecosystem transformation by urbanization. The case study in Xiaguanyin Town of Northwest China demonstrated that urbanization can probably have positive environmental influences on a relatively arid place.
