Encourages Biodiversity

Researchers have discovered that green roofs encourage diversification of plants and animals. Green roofs attract insects, thus serving as food banks for birds. Swiss researchers logged 78 types of spiders and 254 types of beetles, some of which were either rare or on the verge of extinction. For these ecological reasons, the city of London has started a greenroof program to maintain and encourage biodiversity. On a greenroof at London's Canary Wharf 59 types of spiders have been observed: six of which are new for London and two extremely rare for Britain.
