Abstract:
Worldwide, we are becoming an increasingly urbanised species. This is because economic development leads to urbanisation. There is a rapid growth of huge metropolitan areas with more than 10 million residents. Most of the world's largest cities are now in Asia, not in Europe and northern America. Urban landscape has experienced contiguous degradation due to anti ecological activity for last two centuries. The city as a system maintains a flow of energy, provided necessary material resources, and transportation and communication with outlying areas, which transform rural landscape from environmentally sound to destructive one.
