"This lucidly written book convincingly demonstrates the strength of long-term and multidisciplinary study on urban ecosystems. The innovative Baltimore School is introduced as an integrated approach to understanding the complexities urban social-ecological systems."-Jari Niemela, Editor-in-Chief of Urban Ecology-patterns, processes, and applications -- Jari Niemela "Hybrid vigor rules these pages. The Baltimore Sociology-Ecology Team eloquently elucidates a city's overlapping, connected, dynamic patch patterns, both to understand and shape urban mosaics. Indeed this book uncovers foundations for a promising future."-Richard T. T. Forman, author of Urban Ecology: Science of Cities -- Richard T. T. Forman "All urbanists-whether practitioners, theorists, or scientists-will find this volume a must read. Using the concept of patch dynamics, Grove and co-authors bring a fresh, interdisciplinary perspective to an urgent issue: how can we better link urban science with urban decision-making to create and manage cities that are more sustainable?"-Karen C. Seto, Yale University -- Karen C. Seto "The authors have written a major work on urban ecology that reflects years of interdisciplinary collaboration."-Frederick Steiner, Dean, University of Pennsylvania School of Design -- Frederick Steiner "This book stands out from others on urban ecology by its strong emphasis on a central concept and detailed descriptions of and reflections on method. It will be extremely useful in advancing urban ecology as an interdisciplinary pursuit."-Joan Iverson Nassauer, University of Michigan -- Joan Iverson Nassauer "This is a book about Baltimore's past, present, and future, but its resonance reverberates to all the far-flung places we all call home." -From the Foreword by Laura A. Ogden, Dartmouth College -- Laura A. Ogden
