Open lunch lecture Wednesday 25. February at 1200: Urban Ecology by Christian E Mong

Urban Ecology is a subset of the science of Biology that is called Ecology. In this respect Urban Ecology is different from Landscape Ecology because the latter incorporates socioeconomic and cultural perspectives. This lecture in Urban Ecology will briefly go through the most important theories and concepts ecologists apply to the study of Urban Ecology. Two-thirds of the endangered species in a relatively sparsely populated country, Norway, live in connection with man-made structures and urbanized land. The focus of the lecture will be aspects og Urban Ecology relevant to urban developers and architects, not only what is necessary to know but also those perspectives that can inspire and perhaps fascinate. This lecture is aimed at diploma students, but open and of interest to all students at BAS. At 1200 In Large Auditorium. Welcome!
