Wildlife in Cities
To me, the way that wildlife survives and prospers
in harmony with its human hosts in the city environment
is far more fascinating than the wildest nature reserve.
(I once had the aspiration to set up Britain's first
Urban Ecology University department to parallel, if
not surpass, that of Berlin)
A philosophy of bringing the country into the town,
based heavily on the biogeographic theories of islands
and migration corridors, has developed rapidly. This
philosophy, too, has been dependent on the dramatic
physical and chemical change and improvements that have
accompanied the industrialand structural reformation
of urban areas.
Biodiversity Plans are now being implemented to redress
some of these imbalances and promote additional ecological
and environmental objectives.
