Urban Forestry Manual (n) - Urban Wildlife

Reference Type
Book (Chapter)

As areas in this region become increasingly urbanized, land that wildlife once had to itself must now be shared with people. So, it is important to understand the relationship between the urban environment and wildlife so that you can offer recommendations to homeowners, planners, developers, and others on general wildlife issues.

This unit begins by defining urban wildlife and describing its needs. Then ways the various species have adapted to living in an urban area and the characteristics of urban wildlife habitats are discussed. Finally, suggestions for encouraging or discouraging wildlife are given.
