About this book

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, urban agriculture to low-impact development, we need a better understanding of the urban ecosystem.

The editors explore the ecology of urban and suburban ecosystems in the traditional sense, but include humans into the ecosystem rather than assigning them positions of onlookers or polluters.
