The Journal of Living Architecture (JOLA) is the official, peer-reviewed journal of

Green Roofs for Healthy Cities.
The JOLA is written, reviewed, and edited by living architecture research professionals, sharing with their colleagues: successful educational applications, original
research findings, scholarly opinions, educational resources and challenges on issues of
critical importance to living architecture professionals and educators.
The JOLA is published exclusively on the Living Architecture Monitor magazine website. The magazine publishes the abstracts of each published JOLA manuscript, with a

Green Roof Plant Trials for the Central Great Plains, Richard K. Sutton
Forty-three taxa representing native and adaptable plants were trialed for 4 years on an irrigated (as needed) 15 cm (6 inch) deep extensive green roof in Lincoln, NE. Twenty-three
of the taxa showed good performance with minimal maintenance. At the end of the trial in
fall 2014, 32 of the taxa still had at least one specimen surviving. Drought impacts in the
trial's second year eliminated several taxa. Presented here are results and the positive findings of four new extensive green roof taxa, Festuca cinerea, Carex glauca, Eragrostis trichodes, and Distichilis spicata.

FEATURE
Observation of biodiversity on minimally managed green roofs in a tropical city,
Yun Hye HWANG, Zi En Jonathan YUE
While much of the land in Singapore has been urbanized, green roofs have the potential to be
part of an urban ecosystem where limited human interference can promote natural processes.
This study observes the establishment of flora and fauna communities on two newly installed
green roofs using a mix of seeding, transplantation and spontaneous colonization installation
methods and operating under minimal management over a period of 16 months. Recorded
here are plant compositions and spatial distributions of flora growth of 64 species over this period. The minimally managed green roofs in this study possess increased plant species richness,
highlighting a way to enhance urban diversity in a tropical city.
