This is the urban century in which the majority of people live in towns and cities for the first time. Understanding how people and their impact on the "green" component of these environments is crucial is therefore important.

The book provides an overview of the fundamentals of the urban environment and begins by covering the concepts of the vital background of the urbanization process and the impact it can have on ecosystem functions and services. Subsequent sections are devoted to studying how species respond to urbanization, the many aspects of interactions between human ecology, issues surrounding urban planning and the provision of urban green spaces.

Drawing on examples of urban settlements around the world, it highlights the progress made so far in this burgeoning area, as well as the challenges ahead.
