Discover how plants, animals and human intervention define a city’s landscape

City scape

From the meticulously planned to the entirely accidental, one factor all city habitats have in common is some degree of human influence. Moreover, by virtue of their very existence, the diversity of plants and animals found in our urban spaces – school grounds, gardens, parks, allotments, derelict land – must be able to survive in close proximity to people.

While we might seek to control the introduction of flora and fauna, railway lines, canals and rivers provide them with quiet green corridors down which to complete their unhindered migration to our cities.
