Cities are ecological spaces. They are ecosystems packed with trees and vegetation that comprise an urban forest, birds, insects, small mammals, water, and more. They are connected to suburban and rural areas along ecological gradients. And human wellbeing and effective urban design is intimately connected to the health of urban ecosystems. This Blogspace is a collective of writers and is devoted to conversation about cities as ecological spaces…about the nature of cities.
This collective blog was founded, curated and edited by Dr. David Maddox of Sound Science LLC in New York City (www.sound-science.org).
