Review:

"This important collection argues for a new approcah to ecology, redefining ecology in cities as an ecology of cities, in which the built environment presents a unique set of conditions, associations, and ecosystems....This collection works best as a statement and perhaps predictor of a novel conceptual framework that connects architecture, planning, sociology, and policy with the hard sciences that characterize classical ecology....Recommended."
--Choice

Book Description:

This book brings together leading scientists, landscape designers and planners from developed and developing countries around the world, to explore how urban ecological research has been undertaken to date, what has been learnt, where there are gaps in knowledge, and what the future challenges and opportunities are.
