This book explores the entire urban area: from streets, walls, and lawns to riversides, sewer systems, and industrial sites. The book presents models, patterns, data, and examples from a range of cities worldwide. Cities are analysed, not as ecologically bad or good, but as places with concentrated rather than dispersed people. Spatial patterns and flows linking organisms, built structures, and the physical environment highlight a treasure chest of useful principles. This pioneering interdisciplinary book opens up frontiers of insight, as a valuable source and text for undergraduates, graduates, researchers, professionals and others with a thirst for solutions to growing urban problems. Also available in hardcover [stock id 36284].
