Summary

This handbook provides an overview of urban ecosystem structures, functions, and changes and discusses how to successfully accomplish eco-city planning based on government requirements. It adds a new dimension to the understanding and the application of the concept of urban sustainability, based on hypotheses about the social and biogeophysical processes and through many cases worldwide. It covers the total urban metabolism using emergy and exergy as very holistic indicators. This is a nice advance in theory as well as application and makes the book original and valuable to an audience interested in the problem of rapid urbanization.
