More > Biodiversity and Culture’. To the updated papers from those events we have added invited current contributions on the themes of urban nature and urban ecology. Ideas and issues in urban ecology become more significant as globalisation, urbanisation and cultural severance shape our world and our future ecologies. This is paralleled by increasing interest in the underpinning science and research paradigms in relation to urban environmental spaces.In the early 2000s, ecologists new to the urban context suddenly became excited about the juxta-position of pollution and biodiversity in degraded and contaminated sites, something well-known to urban ecologists and naturalists since the 1980s or earlier. Similarly, the contributions of urban gardens to nature conservation were greeted with surprise and excitement.< Less

Dave Lewis offers multiple perspectives in this musical travelogue through a modern Wales and beyond. Honest, raw and mysterious. Just when you think you’ve worked it out, a twist, a turn, a... More > sensuous push. This collection is finely honed. From the intimacy of family and friends to lovers and laughable locals, he is obviously well-travelled and a quality of authenticity shines through. The writer’s eye for detail is finely observed and he is not afraid to experiment. The prose pieces are well crafted and show great range and the final poem in the collection is about as perfect as a poem can be – a masterpiece! A writer who teases and taunts us to dismiss him. I have no doubt that his work will go down in history as both avant-garde and revolutionary. No pretentious bullshit here, this is cutting edge stuff. The short story 'Onions' was runner up in the Rhys Davies Competition.< Less
