1. Cooper, Matthew. Urban Park Street Edges: Enhancing Functionality for the Performance of the 21st Century City .

Degree: 2018, University of Guelph

Parks within the City of Toronto’s urban core are currently facing increased public pressure. “The edge zone” of the park, located at the interface of the street and the park interior, represents an underutilized space with potential to provide alternative park functions and increase the overall performative service of urban parks. Cities in the United States and Canada have launched planning initiatives which have strategized numerous design policies aimed to increase park services. These initiatives include improving edge conditions. This study aims to explore, identify and categorize contemporary edge zone typologies, which can inform design solutions for underperforming urban street park edges. A comparative case study analysis was conducted to identify and highlight a series of these typological forms and functions, as well as illuminate the potential benefits these new edge zone design strategies could provide for the urban park. Advisors/Committee Members: Stewart, Brendan (advisor), Kelly, Sean (advisor).

2. Jonnas Gonçalves Soares. Limites territoriais em litígio no Brasil: estudo do caso existente na divisa entre os estados do Espírito Santo e Minas Gerais, no interior do Parque Nacional do Caparaó.

Degree: 2013, Universidade Federal de Viçosa

The following work contributes to a very important issue nowadays where spatial information is available and accessible to any individual. This work talks about important branches of knowledge and different interests. The boundaries today have an important meaning for the administrative regions that are defined through their lines. Through them that municipalities, states and countries plans their area of acting in security, social assistance, tax payments, among many other services and activities for the population. Despite its importance, the issue of boundaries in Brazil is not well understood and resolved, being very few studies that address this issue In Brazil. In this way, this study aimed to map the existing litigation on the boundaries of the states of Espírito Santo and Minas Gerais, inside the Caparaó national park. For that, we used topographic maps of municipalities of Manhumirim, Espera Feliz, and Divino de São Lourenço, as well as the municipal digital limits produced by IBGE, allowed the use of the limits of the municipalities in digital format, support of GPS technology, Ikonos images, the software ArcGIS and field study. It was also necessary to research the Brazilian constitution and state laws that define the responsibilities of each federal unit and the central govern over the limits. In addition to the laws, it was also necessary to rescue old maps to illustrate and better understand the problem at the border between Espírito Santo and Minas Gerais. Results showed that by overlapping the boundaries of topographic maps with the boundaries of the municipal digital limits was possible to detect the area of litigation, totaling 623 ha. Of these, only 59 ha are outside the park, the rest being under federal jurisdiction, but belong to their respective municipalities.

O trabalho a seguir vem contribuir para uma questão muito importante nos dias atuais onde as informações espaciais estão disponíveis e acessíveis a qualquer indivíduo. Esta questão passa por importantes ramos do conhecimento e diferentes interesses. Os limites territoriais tem hoje um importante significado para as regiões administrativas que são definidas através de suas linhas. São através delas que municípios, Estados e Países planejam sua área de atuação na segurança, assistência social, recolhimentos de impostos, entre outros diversos serviços e ações destinadas à população. Apesar de sua importância, a questão de limites no Brasil não é bem esclarecida e resolvida, sendo pouquíssimos os estudos que tratam desse assunto. Desta forma, ele teve como objetivo principal mapear o litígio existente na divisa dos estados do Espírito Santo e Minas Gerais, no interior do parque nacional do Caparaó. Para tal, foram utilizadas cartas topográficas dos municípios de Manhumirim, Espera Feliz, Iuna e Divino de São Lourenço, bem como a malha municipal digital do IBGE, que permitiu a utilização dos limites dos municípios em formato digital, além do suporte da tecnologia GPS, imagens Ikonos, do software ArcGis e de visitas a campo.

3. St. James, Katherine. The ecological effects of the cleared boundaries of Bruce Peninsula National Park.

Degree: 2009, University of Waterloo

Bruce Peninsula National Park (BPNP) clears a 2 m swath of trees on the boundary in order to make it clear when one is entering the park from any neighbouring land; this in particular aims to protect the park and its inhabitants from illegal actions such as hunting and logging. This study looks at the ecological effects of this practice by measuring various microclimate variables and the abundance of eastern redback salamanders (Plethodon cinereus) on the boundary and comparing these measurements to parallel transects at 5, 10, 15, 20, and 40 m. Because it is a small linear development, it is then compared to other types of linear developments, such as roads, trails, and pipelines. The microclimate variables of air temperature, slug abundance, canopy cover, soil pH, total cover area, litter depth, and relative humidity were all significantly affected (p<0.05) up to 10 m into the adjacent forest, indicating that the cleared boundaries do change the surrounding microclimate. Soil pH, downed woody cover area, litter depth, and canopy cover were significantly affected (p<0.05) up to 5 m away from the boundary. Sixty hectares, or 0.4%, of the land area of BPNP is thus affected by the microclimate changes caused by the cleared boundary. These effects are similar to those found for other narrow, vegetated linear developments such as trails. Over double the number of salamanders were found on the boundary as compared to in the forest; this is due to higher cover area availability on the cleared boundary from the felled trees. Therefore, the boundary does not act as a barrier to eastern redback salamander movement, nor does it fragment the local population. Salamander abundance was best explained by the amount of cover area, snail abundance, and the dominant type of vegetation present along transects. It was also found in an additional study that salamander abundance tended to increase with increasing days since the last precipitation event, contrary to most woodland salamander monitoring protocols and methods. The boundaries were seen also to be used by hunters and recreationalists through incidental observations of human disturbance. This increased access to remote areas of the park through use of the cleared boundaries is an issue that requires further study, as the boundary itself may be leading to an increase in illegal activity. Recommendations to BPNP include leaving downed woody cover on the boundary, minimizing the boundary width, reducing lines of sight, decreasing accessibility, increasing landowner and park staff education, communicating with adjacent landowners, and securing funding to complete and maintain the boundary clearing.
