About this book

This book covers 222 species of plants that flourish without human assistance or approval in urban areas. Rather than vilifying such plants as weeds, the author stresses that it is important to notice, recognize and appreciate their contribution to the quality of urban life. Indeed their very toughness in the face of heat islands, elevated levels of carbon dioxide and ubiquitous contamination is indicative of the important role they have to play in helping humans adapt to the challenges presented by urbanization, globalization and climate change.

The species accounts - 158 main entries plus 64 secondary species - feature descriptive information including scientific name and taxonomic authority, common names, botanical family, life form, place of origin and identification feature
