Kitt Chappell’s Chicago’s Urban Nature is a must-read book about Chicago’s renowned landscape heritage, from its famed parks and urban plazas to public gardens, campuses, and cemeteries. The book is conveniently broken down into neighborhoods, many of which can be visited on foot. It will go a long way toward sharing the urban treasures of this architecturally rich city.”. Urban green vegetation provides amenity value for urban residents and improves the living environment. These changes in value can be reflected in the variation of house prices. This paper uses a unique housing transaction data set to estimate the impact of urban green vegetation on house values in Beijing, China, using the hedonic price model.

1. Introduction. Contemporary ecological models of health have evolved to prominently feature the natural environment as fundamental to the ecosystem services that support human life and health [].In these models, the biosphere, landscape, and natural environment are the foundation of health and well-being (e.g., Figure 1) [2,3].Despite this, the natural environment receives relatively little Cited by: The paper in this book meets the guidelines for permanence and durability of the Committee on Production Guidelines for Book Longevity of the Council on Library Resources.

INTRODUCTION As the name implies green technology is one that has a "green" purpose. Urban green areas provide affo rdances for urban people to become closer to nature and enable them to contact wi t h n a tu re, th es e ar ea s provide the sense for exploring of human nature.

"The 'green' landscapes in these studies are not what most people would call green," says Kuo, co-director of the Human­Environment Research Laboratory at the University of Illinois at Urbana­Champaign.

"We're talking about isolated pockets of green containing just the bare bones of grass and a tree.". I use a two-tier approach to structure future research challenges in urban green space ecology. First, questions that are too large for a single country or discipline to address revolve around two issues: (a) how urban green spaces will be affected by socio-demographic and environmental drivers, such as climate change, and (b) how to plan and manage urban green spaces for the benefit of urban Cited by: Urban Climate serves the scientific and decision making communities with the publication of research on theory, science and applications relevant to understanding urban climatic conditions and change in relation to their geography and to demographic, socioeconomic, institutional, technological and environmental dynamics and global ed towards both disciplinary and interdisciplinary.

The paper "The Need for Green Spaces in Urban Planning" is an excellent example of a literature review on environmental studies. Urbanization is growing very fast globally, and the process is, unfortunately, causing negative effects on the environment (Rakhshandehroo et al., ).

Green Architecture Green architecture, or green design, is an approach to building that minimizes harmful effects on human health and the environment. The "green" architect or designer attempts to safeguard air, water, and earth by choosing eco-friendly building materials and construction practices (Roy,).

1. It’s time we move beyond ‘urban green’ to ‘urban nature‘ – especially in arid cities where the indigenous nature is often not green (think blue, yellow, red, brown). We need to plan and design multi-functional urban nature spaces with the aim of providing sustainability, wellbeing and resilience benefits to cities.
