Urban Production from Manufacturing to Financialisation : the Case of China

(Working Papers MAPS ; 1)

During the twentieth Century, urban production theories considered manufacturing as the main engine for development. Today, financialization of real estate as well as mobile consumer’s expenses have developed at a larger scale and play an increasing role. We argue that this shift affects the Global South as well as the Global North. The Chinese case shows the relevance of a territorial...

Spatial scaling, proportional thinking, and numerical understanding in 5- to 7-year-old children

Möhring, Wenke ; Frick, Andrea ; Newcombe, Nora S.

In: Cognitive Development, 2018, vol. 45, p. 57–67

The present study investigated the role of spatial scaling and proportional-reasoning skills in children’s number-line estimations. Proportional strategies in number-line estimations might suggest that correlations between number-line knowledge and scaling are driven by proportional thinking. However, analyses of data on spatial scaling, proportional reasoning, counting skills, and number-line...

A gardener’s influence on urban soil quality

Tresch, Simon ; Moretti, Marco ; Le Bayon, Renée-Claire ; Mäder, Paul ; Zanetta, Andrea ; Frey, David ; Fliessbach, Andreas

Gardens are hot spots for urban biodiversity and provide habitats for many plant and animal species, both above- and below-ground. Furthermore, gardens provide a wide range of ecosystem services, including carbon (C) storage and nutrient cycling. Although the soil is the foundation of sustainable gardens providing those ecosystem services, very little is known about the consequences of garden...
