Spontaneous urban vegetation found in the urban landscape have the capacity to make significant contributions to the ecological and social fabric of the urban city. Through the study of three biotope’s within Vancouver’s Down-town East side, certain plants are found to dominate and provide nitrogen fixation, photo-synthesis, habitat for wildlife, cover crops for urban agriculture as well, an opportunity to gain knowledge of medicinal and edible uses.
