Urban river greenway,as river corridor,plays an important role in urban ecological protection,while the ecological value of river greenway will be more prominent when its width was advisable. Therefore,the width setting is an important part of the urban river ecological construction. This paper reviewed the impacts of greenway width on river ecological functions in terms of soil conservation and pollution control,biological protection and microclimate improvement,summarized the problems rising in the current research and made the recommendations to urban river greenway construction,in order to provide a reference on urban river greenway planning at the ecological level.
