Ecology for the City

For our purposes, urban ecology comprises both the traditional ecological understanding of the interactions between and among organisms and their urban environment as well as a systems ecology perspective where the city itself is viewed as an ecosystem.

These definitions refer to the ecology "in" and the ecology "of " cities, respectively.

We recognize the importance and complexity that humans bring to the system. This recognition leads us to be highly interdisciplinary in the way we approach the subject of urban ecology.
