Abstract
Today’s human population is continuously increasing and this also increases the need of exploiting natural habitats. Increased exploitation results in loss of important habitats for different organisms, which in turn leads to biodiversity loss. The loss of biodiversity endangers the supply of ecosystem services, which is fundamental for human well-being. To mitigate the loss of biodiversity and ecosystem services, the building and construction-sector uses Nature -based solutions (NBS).
MAX IV is a new science plant located in the city of Lund, Sweden. The aim of this study is to evaluate interventions on the MAX IV area, classified as NBS. The interventions are evaluated in terms of their qualification of biodiversity and ecosystem... (More)

MAX IV is a new science plant located in the city of Lund, Sweden. The aim of this study is to evaluate interventions on the MAX IV area, classified as NBS. The interventions are evaluated in terms of their qualification of biodiversity and ecosystem services. This study mostly focuses on the prerequisites for pollinators, honeybees and wild bees, on the MAX IV area. The prerequisites are evaluated by the access of food recourses that the different interventions have brought to the area. Also the prerequisite for biodiversity, in connection with NBS on the MAX IV area, is evaluated. The prerequisite for biodiversity of birds, bats, pollinators and vegetation was evaluated in terms of accessibility to the area and the supply of recourses.
The result of this study shows lack of flowering food recourses during the beginning and end of the pollinator season. The supply of food recourses was best during the months of June and July, but during the months of March and October the supply of food recourses was deficit.
The results also show lack of food resources for wild bees. The results from the evaluation of resources for biodiversity show that the MAX IV area is most adapted for mobile species like pollinators, bats and birds. Possible competition between honeybees and wild bees is also mentioned as a negative effect on the wild biodiversity on the MAX IV area. (Less)
