    The Beaver, Cottonwoods, and Lucy: Preservation Is Not Enough
    Mike Houck, Portland

    In a previous essay, Size Doesn’t Matter, Really, I made the case that even small scraps of urban green, such as Portland’s one-square-block Tanner Springs Nature Park can provide significant benefits to a community.

    Nature Rebounding in the Peri-Urban Landscapes that the Industrial Revolution Left Behind: North West England’s Carbon Landscape
    Janice Astbury, Manchester Joanne Tippett, Manchester

    Tracking Biodiversity Around Us: You Can’t Care about What You Don’t Know
    Leah Thorpe, Singapore Peta Thorpe, Singapore Olivia Tay, Singapore Lena Chan, Singapore
