Buildings consume 40% of our planet’s materials and 30% of its energy. Their construction uses up to three million tonnes of raw materials a year and generates 20% of the soild waste stream. If we want to survive our urban future, there is no option but to build in ways which improve the health of ecosystems.

Comparative Ecology of Microorganisms and Macroorganisms, Second Edition

Comparative Ecology of Microorganisms and Macroorganisms, Second Edition By John H. Andrews
English | PDF | 2017 | 365 Pages | ISBN : 1493968955 | 11.7 MB

This second edition textbook offers an expanded conceptual synthesis of microbial ecology with plant and animal ecology. Drawing on examples from the biology of microorganisms and macroorganisms, this textbook provides a much-needed interdisciplinary approach to ecology. The focus is the individual organism and comparisons are made along six axes: genetic variation, nutritional mode, size, growth, life cycle, and influence of the environment. When it was published in 1991, the first edition of Comparative Ecology of Microorganisms and Macroorganisms was unique in its attempt to clearly compare fundamental ecology across the gamut of size.

The Ecology of Games: Connecting Youth, Games, and Learning (The John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation Series on Digital Media and Learning) by Katie Salen
English | Jan. 4, 2008 | ISBN: 0262195755 | 271 Pages | PDF | 2 MB

In the many studies of games and young people's use of them, little has been written about an overall "ecology" of gaming, game design and play–mapping the ways that all the various elements, from coding to social practices to aesthetics, coexist in the game world. This volume looks at games as systems in which young users participate, as gamers, producers, and learners. The Ecology of Games (edited by Rules of Play author Katie Salen) aims to expand upon and add nuance to the debate over the value of games–which so far has been vociferous but overly polemical and surprisingly shallow.

A Comparative Political Ecology of Exurbia

A Comparative Political Ecology of Exurbia: Planning, Environmental Management, and Landscape Change
Springer | Nature Conservation & Biodiversity | June 27, 2016 | ISBN-10: 3319294601 | 310 pages | pdf | 10.9 mb

Editors: Taylor, Laura, Hurley, Patrick T. (Eds.)
This book is about planning, conservation, and land development issues in exurbia-areas of high natural amenity under pressure from real estate development. It is geared towards a senior undergraduate and graduate academic audience and the general educated public, including municipal officials and consultants
The urban and regional planning literature, while concerned with growth management, does not focus rigorously on exurbia and therefore the book makes an important contribution to course readings for planning schools
