This manual provides the current state of knowledge on the functioning of nature in an urban environment: its ecology.

Cities are complex structures that shelter a disparity of living conditions. They can both generate and destroy pools of biodiversity. They are themselves organisms that develop, mutate, and die. This Manual analyzes these phenomena. It affirms several principles to overcome the ecological blindness of city dwellers and avert the agony of urban ecosystems.
