Megacities are huge urban agglomerations with at least 10 million people. Here, nature is often neglected and in consequence human wellbeing is affected. A new study suggests that conserving natural areas could have huge benefits for the inhabitants. Using mathematical modeling the researchers estimated that by planting around 20% more trees in megacities the quality of the air could be improved, pollution could be reduced and even the consumption of energy could be decreases.
