UNH Scientists Find Urban Ecosystems “Evolve,” Require Sustainable Management

Cities are generally thought of as highly engineered landscapes that are not as ecologically dynamic as naturally occurring forests and free-flowing streams. But in a series of studies published Sept. 10 in a special issue of the journal Biogeochemistry, scientists specializing in urban ecosystems, including two from the University of New Hampshire, show urban and suburban environments are dynamic biological, chemical, and even geological ecosystems that can change relatively quickly in response to human activities.
