If more than half of the Earth's people live in cities and the amount of paved surfaces in the United States is equivalent to the area of Ohio, shouldn't our sciences thrive in the city? Urban Ecosystem Ecology takes on the important task of reconciling environmental sciences with the world's growing urbanization. From wildlife to water, from urban agriculture to low-impact development, we need a better understanding of the urban ecosystem.
Astrid Volder is an Assistant Professor of Horticultural Landscape Ecology within the Horticultural Sciences department at Texas A&M University. Her research and teaching focus on plant stress response and belowground ecology as affected by climate change, urbanization and ecosystem management.
