The theme for Volume 2 is “Ecological Landscaping: From Scientific Principles to Public Practices and Policies.”
CATE’s mission is to bring together research scientists, urban practitioners and communitybased professionals in a multi-media forum of peer-reviewed articles that address the challenges of understanding and managing urban ecosystems. Its goal is to contribute to the development of healthy and sustainable urban communities by providing engaging and practical information to urban stakeholders.
