Through the exploration of population growth intensities within an urban context and their (growing) demands on the environment, this proposal will provide an allegorical study of the relationship between a dynamic organic plant system and it’s ecologies. This study will then be employed as a framework for the development of a specific urban ecology in the Ponsonby/Grey Lynn context.
Crucial to this however, is learning how the plant system adapts and expands from within into surrounding ecologies and existing dynamic systems (and how this knowledge is then utilised). The demonic/invasive alien plant species, one of the worst forest weeds in New Zealand, is Tradescantia
fluminensis: a rhizome.
Key words: ecology, phylogenesis, dynamic system, meshwork’s, traits, adaptation, resilience, mutation, heterogeneity, homogeneity, diversity, rhizome
