Urban Environments - History, Biodiversity & Culture By Ian D. Rotherham
Paperback: $21.88
Ships in 3-5 business days
This volume is a retrospective publication of contributions originally to two national conferences / seminars held in Sheffield, on the theme of ‘Urban Environments – History,... 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

The volcanic Galapagos Islands are typically known for Charles Darwin’s 1835 seminal publication of ‘Origin of Species’ and his theories of evolution - and less for their... More > contemporary development issues. Data shows the islands are expanding rapidly in population and in tourist visitors, yet there are very few projects (on land or water) that examine integrated ecological solutions for development that might enable or promote a sustainable economic model. The work in this book is a compendium of MIT student work, and we hope it serves to illustrate alternative ways to work with, and on, the Galapagos Islands. In a series of conceptual projects that we invented, we hope to examine how architecture, urbanism and ecology might combine to create and better new scenarios for the future. On reflection, the work of the studio is a first step to a larger conversation about how the Galapagos should see its future, research the impact of human adaptation, and set some goals for survival.< Less
