About this book

Urban environments are complex, dynamic, rapidly changing systems controlled by man. Despite living in cities for more than 4,000 years, we know very little about how cities function as ecological entities. This book tracks the changes to the biological communities, to the plants and animals, and to the structure and nature of the built environment of the city of Adelaide from its inception in 1836 to the present day and predicts the future through to 2036.

Adelaide is the capital city of South Australia, the central and southern state of Australia. Adelaide was established as a free colony in 1836 and is today a large vibrant city separated by around 800 kilometres from the nearest major city (Melbourne). As a separate isolated city, established by literate, well-educated settlers who collected and retained a magnificent amount of information on the pre-European environment and recent historical change, Adelaide is a wonderful model to understand the dynamic changes that have occurred in a large urban community.
