Urban ecology is the scientific study of the relation of living organisms with each other and their surroundings in the context of an urban urban environment refers to environments dominated by high-density residential and commercial buildings, paved surfaces, and other urban-related factors that create a unique landscape dissimilar to most previously studied environments in.

      in urban areas, many of the processes that explain the relationships between plants, animals and their natural habitats appear unfamiliar or inappropriate in a city. Urban ecology shows how these processes are the same ones that affect the urban communities’ humans inhabit (Nadine Anne Bopp, ). Urbanization in World.
