Not since Richard Fitters landmark publication in 1945, Londons Natural History (volume 3 in the New Naturalist series) has there been a comprehensive guide to urban natural history. Since then there have been major advances in the conservation of nature in our towns and cities, and there is even more to say about how animals and plants have adapted, in varying degrees, to urbanisation. This is not merely an exploration of natural history within the urban environment. David Goode uses his knowledge of urban ecology to describe the range of habitats and species which exist within urban areas, and shows how our understanding is being applied to encourage a greater variety of nature into towns and cities.
