  • Applied ecology ; Ecotone ; Hungary ; Land use ; Outer conurbation area ; Urban area ; Urban ecology ; Urban fringe
  • Besides the investigations into the basic elements of the ecological spatial networks : the ecological matrix areas, corridors of barriers and also the biocores and buffer zones, the analysis of the edge-zones, the so-called ecotons
  • , is an increasingly popular topic of landscape ecology. The ecological role of the edge zones is proportional to the contrast between the ecological properties of the areas they separate. The ecological contrast is the sharpest possible round the town outskirts. - (ZK)
  • The eco-environmental guarantee for China's urbanization process
  • China ; Ecology ; Environment ; Forecast ; Sustainable development ; Urban ecology ; Urbanization
  • Studying the change of resources consumption and eco-environmental carrying capacity are of importance to the sustainable development of urbanization. Based on the China's economic and social statistical data from 1950 to 2006, the ecological
  • footprint, ecological footprint intensity, ecological deficit and surplus, and eco-environment quality comprehensive index are calculated, the correlation between urbanization and eco-environmental change is analyzed and the eco-environmental guarantee
  • for China's urbanization in 2030 is forecasted.
  • Marginalia : aesthetics, ecology, and urban wastelands
  • Applied ecology ; Biodiversity ; Ecosystem ; Esthetics ; Marginal area ; Urban ecology ; Vegetation ; Wasteland ; Wilderness
  • theoretically nuanced and historically grounded conception of the intersections between critical cultural discourses and recent advances in urban ecology might provide a useful counterpoint to narrowly utilitarian approaches to urban nature.
  • This article considers wastelands or anomalous spaces of urban nature as an interdisciplinary terrain that extends from renewed interest in urban biodiversity to alternative conceptions of landscape authenticity. It is suggested that a more
  • Power, nature, and the city. The conquest of water and the political ecology of urbanization in Guayaquil, Ecuador: 1880-1990
  • Collective facilities ; Ecuador ; Guayaquil ; Historical geography ; Marketing channel ; Sanitation improvement ; Urbanization ; Viability ; Water ; Water management
  • The A. attempts to reconstruct the urbanization process as a political and an ecological process. In Guayaquil, water becomes subject to an intense social struggle for control and access. The A. documents and analyzes the historical geography
  • of water control in the context of the political ecology of the urbanization. The urbanization process is written from the perspective of the drive to domesticate nature's water and the necessity to push the ecological frontier outward as the city expands.
  • Queer ecology : nature, sexuality, and heterotopic alliances
  • Cemetery ; Difference ; Green space ; London ; Political ecology ; Post-humanism ; Public space ; Urban area ; Urban ecology
  • This interdisciplinary terrain is explored by using the example of an urban cemetery in North London as a starting point. Queer ecology may enrich our understanding of both urban materiality and the role of metaphors in urban theory. This idea

  • This review considers the development of wall ecology, highlighting the key characteristics of walls that have been found to influence their ability to support species, with a focus on higher plants. It then examines the kinds of plant assemblages
  • engineering of wall materials, but much more needs to be done to effectively increase their physical complexity and habitat quality. Walls therefore represent a substantial potential (as well as existing) habitat within urban areas.
  • Ecology ; Hungary ; Spatial structure ; Urban climate ; Urban ecology
  • This paper attempts to demonstrate the urban ecological conditions of Debrecen (E-Hungary) through the analysis of the pattern of built-up areas in this major city of the Great Hungarian Plain. In order to reveal these conditions a joint study
  • of urban climate and the related pattern of the built-up areas were carried out. - (Zoltán Kovács).
  • 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.
  • Factorial ecology and the South African city: some problems and prospects
  • The factorial ecology approach to urban analysis has recently been subject to widespread criticism. These criticisms have focussed both on the conceptual foundation of factorial ecology and on the application of factorial techniques to problems
  • of spatial socio-economic differentiation. It is shown that many of the problems inherent in the technique are compounded in the South African urban context. (L'A.).

  • The article explores new ways of integrating technology, nature and infrastructures into urban public spaces. It is done through a case study, the design of this square of Madrid, which is offered here as a model to explore a novel urban political
  • , public and political agents provides a useful model to address the growing proliferation of infrastructural and technological elements onto contemporary urban surfaces and to open up the possibility of new forms of civic participation and engagement.
