Abstract

The wetland has the richest biodiversity among all the natural ecosystems. With the rapid growth of population and the extension of urban area, the shrinking and fragmentation of wetlands have consequently lead to the loss of wildlife. This paper proposed a framework for building the security pattern of wetlands for the biodiversity conservation. It took the build-up area of Haikou as study case, constructed a potential pattern in urban areas to protect both the wetland habitats and the migratory paths of wetland wildlife. We built the security patterns of wetlands and divided it into three units with different protection measures, which include the basic security pattern, moderate security pattern and optimal security pattern, accounting for 14.27%, 25.42% and 44.81% of the total area respectively. It is hoped that this spatial qualified approach could be applied in urban planning and design practices in the future.
