Urbanization is a global phenomenon and the book emphasizes that this is not just a social-technological process. It is also a social-ecological process where cities are places for nature, and where cities also are dependent on the biosphere.
Applied ecology is a framework for a better balance between people and nature in order to reduce human impact. This textbook provides a review of important areas of applied ecological knowledge for advanced university students and site managers.
