 Biodiversity intervention enhances immune regulation and health-associated commensal microbiota among daycare childrenAMERICAN ASSOCIATION FOR THE ADVANCEMENT OF SCIENCEResearch News    SHARE PRINT  E-MAILChildren who played in formerly gravel-covered urban daycare center yards renovated with natural forest floor, sod, and vegetation developed more diverse microbiomes and signs of a better-regulated immune system within one month, according to a new study with 75 children between 3 and 5 years old. The findings suggest it may be possible to improve immune systems in urban communities simply by granting young children daily access to green spaces. Previous studies have shown that urban populations are more susceptible to immune-mediated diseases, with the prominent "biodiversity hypothesis" blaming a lack of exposure to diverse microbiota. To test the biodiversity hypothesis, Marja Roslund and colleagues performed an intervention in the yards of 4 standard Finnish daycare centers, transferring natural forest floor rich with dwarf shrubs, blueberries, crowberry, and mosses to the bare spaces. Children spent an average of 1.5 hours per day over 28 days planting, crafting natural materials, and playing games in the renovated green spaces.
