dc.description.abstract Numerous studies explain the relationship between the environment and human behavior using the term "environmental stressor ." Some examples of environmental stressors are temperature , air pollution , noise , and density and crowding . The negative effects of these environmental stressors on humans occur in the form of mental fatigue and lead to increased anger , aggression , and even violence . Environments such as urban forests provide a number of benefits for one's quality of life . People living in vegetated areas feel lower levels of fear , and have less aggressive and violent behavior . In this light , this study hypothesizes that population density in urbanized areas can function as an environmental stressor to urban residents , and that vegetated areas in urban settings can moderate environmental stress produced from high population density . This study is important to urban planners and landscape architects who develop design criteria in order to provide a safer urban environment and a better quality of life for urban residents . en_US
