Nature and Cities calls for the urgent need to integrate ecology into urban design and planning, working with nature rather than against it to build resilience as the world urbanizes and the effects of climate change grow more severe.
The book builds on traditions by leading thinkers such as Aldo Leopold, Ian McHarg, and Patrick Geddes, and the premise of Ecological Design and Planning (also edited by Thompson and Steiner).
