Editorial Reviews

Review

"An excellent and timely treatise on preserving and restoring biodiveristy in the urban landscape. . . . The diverse author team of scientists, educators, and government employees is highly qualified to discuss the complex ecological and sociological issues addressed in this book. . . . With urbanization increasing globally and with people's ecological awareness surging, this book will be very popularly received as an ecological classic for the '90s."―Choice

"This collection approaches the idea of 'sustainability' from a number of different, equally viable points of view and contains thought-provoking concepts that are illustrated or supported by data and specific examples. The world would be useful to several kinds of audiences: regional planners, local conservation commissions, ecologists who become involved in urban problems, and academics looking for concrete real-world examples to use in their teaching."―C. John Burke, Smith College
