Wilson, William G.

Constructed Climates. A Primer on Urban Environments. 2011. figs. tabs. 288 p. gr8vo. Hardcover.
In the book, the author demonstrates the value of urban green. Focusing specifically on the role of vegetation and trees, the author shows the costs and benefits reaped from urban open spaces, from cooler temperatures to better quality ground water, and why it all matters. While the book is a work of science, it does not ignore the social component. The author looks at low-income areas that have poor vegetation, and shows how enhancing these areas through the planting of community gardens and trees can alleviate social ills. This book will be essential reading for environmentalists and anyone making decisions for the nature and well-being of our cities and citizens.
