ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the significance of scientific studies on urban ecology. It cites the study by Boston University ecologist Nathan Phillips on the movement of carbon dioxide and other gases in the city to understand the exchange of elements between natural and human systems and the ULTRA-Ex project in Cleveland, Ohio to investigate the effects of land conversion to urban farm. It states that such studies are essential and should yield practical benefits to make cities more sustainable.
