Urban Ecology synopsis
Urban ecology is a rapidly growing area of academic and practical importance. Urban ecologists have published numerous conference proceedings and contributed regularly to ecological, architectural, planning and geographic literature.
However, important papers are not collected in this area that lay the foundation for specialization and explain the modern approaches of a variety of perspectives and regions of the world in one accessible book. The foundations of urban ecology do so by reprinting important European and American publications, filling gaps in published literature with a few original works, and translating major works originally published in German.
This edited folder will provide students and professionals a rich background in all aspects of the urban environment. The editors emphasize human settlement engines, patterns, processes and effects.
The papers they create provide readers with a broad understanding of local and global aspects of settlement through traditional natural and social lens lenses. This multi-disciplinary vision gives the reader an overview of the urban ecosystem by introducing drivers, patterns, processes and impacts of human settlements, human-animal relations, plants, processes of ecosystems and non-living conditions.
The reader learns how human institutions, health, and preferences affect and are influenced by other members of the common urban ecosystem.
