Urbanization: Global Trends, Role of Climate Change and Effects on Biodiversity


Harold J. Kauffman (Editor)

Series: Environmental Research Advances
BISAC: TEC003000

Urbanization is caused by migration. However, an essential difference exists between migration in the past and that in the present. This book focuses on several topics that include a comparison between an informational city and a smart city; urbanization and human impact on biodiversity in Water’s Edge Public Spaces (WEPS); a mathematical- modeling approach to urbanization caused by migration; sustaining urbanization in a developing economy; and urbanization and cardiomyopathy vulnerability in an African male cohort.
