Artscape Plant Benefits Article
It is widely known through the respected research done by Dr. Roger S. Ulrich of Texas A&M University, Helen Russell, Surrey University, England as well as the recent studies conducted by Dr. Virginia Lohr of Washington State University that plants significantly lower workplace stress and enhance productivity.
The results indicating an influence of plants on blood pressure are consistent with research conducted by Dr. Ulrich. Copious studies such as those conducted by Dr. Ulrich and Dr. David Uzzell from Oxford University verify the positive effect plants have on employee perception and disposition.
"Our research shows that a change as simple as adding flowers and plants can be important in the most meaningful way to businesses in the modern economy," said Dr. Roger Ulrich, lead researcher on the project.
"We know the importance of learning, for example, how natural surroundings affect drivers, school children, and hospital patients" said Ulrich, who has conducted extensive research on the effects of environments on psychological well-being, stress and health. "To businesses, it should be equally as important to understand what features can improve performance at work and make employees more productive." Background The Impact of Flowers and Plants on Workplace Productivity Study was conducted over eight months by Roger Ulrich, Ph.D., Behavioral Scientist, Director of the Center for Health Systems and Design, Texas A&M University in College Station, Texas.
Many such benefits of keeping plants in office are proved by the study made by Dr. Roger S. Ulrich of Texas A&M University, Helen Russell, Surrey University, England and Dr. Virginia Lohr of Washington State University.
Living Architecture - More than meets the eye to living walls and plants
Dr. Roger S. Ulrich, Ph.D, Professor of Architecture at Texas A&M University and a faculty fellow of the Center for Health Systems & Design, has done extensive research on the benefits of indoor plants.
His studies show that stress is reduced by simply viewing nature, and that blood pressure, heart activity, muscle tension and brain activity could all be improved by viewing plants for as little as three to five minutes.
