Urban Ecosystem Ecology

If more than half the Earth’s people live in cities and the amount of paved surfaces in the United States is equivalent to the area of Ohio, shouldn’t our sciences thrive in the city? This book reconciles environmental sciences with the world’s growing urbanization. From wildlife to water, from urban agriculture to low-impact development, we need a better understanding of the urban ecosystem. Urban Ecosystem Ecology explores the ecology of urban and suburban ecosystems in its traditional sense, but it puts humans into the ecosystem rather than assigning them positions of onlookers or polluters. Readers will especially benefit from a synthesis of the literature, results from urban ecosystems, and modified methods of analysis. Jacqueline Aitkenhead-Peterson and Astrid Volder, ed.
