Book: Urban–Rural Interfaces: Linking People and Nature, 2012
Published by: American Society of Agronomy, Soil Science Society of America, Crop Science Society of America, Inc.

 

What is the nature of the urban–rural interface? Is it the place where country gives way to residential neighborhoods and shopping areas in a startling way? Is it a simple factor of population density? There is nothing simple about the urban–rural interface—Editors David Laband, Graeme Lockaby, and Wayne Zipperer present the broad spectrum of interdisciplinary complexities at play. Organized into three sections on changing ecosystems, changing human dimensions, and the dynamic integration of human and natural systems, this is the new sustainability science, an emerging discipline that calls for integrating social and economic values with the physical, chemical, and ecological functions of ecosystems.
