  • The urban political ecology of post-industrial Scottish towns : examining Greengairs and Ravenscraig
  • Applied ecology ; Community ; Marginality ; Political ecology ; Scotland ; Social deprivation ; Social geography ; Toxic waste ; United Kingdom ; Waste treatment
  • This article examines the urban political ecology of post-industrial Scottish towns (Greengairs and Ravenscraig) with the goal of unravelling the understanding and the coping mechanisms of environmentally deprived residents. The towns are permeated
  • by a widespread, often dissimulated, political ecology that is nonetheless always present. Empirical results demonstrate that a more comprehensive handling of the political ecology of the urban is crucial in order to halt the sources of marginalisation
  • and ecological degradation.

  • Megapolitan political ecology and urban metabolism in Southern Appalachia
  • Appalachian Mountains ; Climatic change ; Ecology ; Governance ; Megalopolis ; Political ecology ; United States of America ; Urban dynamics ; Urban growth ; Urban metabolism ; Urbanization
  • This article examines the Piedmont megapolitan political ecology and urban metabolism in Southern Appalachia. First, it considers the central role urban metabolic connections play in the region's pressing social and environmental crises. Second
  • , it illuminates these human and nonhuman urban metabolisms across the Piedmont megapolitan region using data from the Coweeta Long-Term Eco-logical Research (LTER) program, especially highlighting a growing “ring of asphalt” that epito-mizes several developing
  • changes to patterns of metabolism. The conclusion suggests that changing urban metabolisms indicated by Coweeta LTER data, ranging from flows of people to flows of wa-ter, pose a complicated problem for regional governance and vitality in the future.

  • Through a political ecology approach, the AA. analyze how ornamental species have become a fundamental part of new natures induced by urbanization in the Spanish province of Alicante. They connect the economic and ecological characteristics
  • of ornamental plants like the palm tree to urbanization and real estate trends in Alicante. The results indicate that, in Alicante, economic recession and environmental crises (manifested in the pests affecting palm trees) have mutually reinforced one other

  • The paper provides empirical evidence about socio-spatial differentiation in Riga according to its ecological structure. AA.’ aim is to examine the characteristics of the inhabitants by distinctive types of urban neighbourhoods with particular
  • interest on ethnicity. The analysis is based on a recent sample survey that was carried out in 2012 and 2013. The results reveal that characteristics of population subgroups differ among urban zones with regard to ethnic origin, age, household size

  • Reimagining the food system, the economy, and urban life : new urban chicken-keepers in US cities
  • Agrosystem ; Food ; Livestock farming ; Relations between human and animal bodies ; United States of America ; Urban area ; Urban ecology ; Washington State
  • This article examines the food system, the economy, and urban life through new urban chicken-keepers in Portland, Oregon, and Seattle, Washington State. It shows that they do it as an explicit effort to promote and enact alternative urban
  • imaginaries. In interviews, participants critique the industrial food system, urban economies and social life, and “think differently” about human-animal relations and productive animals in cities. Through these practices, they establish sustainable backyard
  • agro-ecosystems, build sociability, resist consumerism, and work simultaneously to improve the life and health of animals, humans, and the urban environment.
