edited by Martina Artmann, Luis Inostroza, Peilei Fan
This special issue was initiated in the course of the eponymous symposium organized by the guest editors in the course of the second World Congress of the Society for Urban Ecology.
The guest editors want to express their sincere gratitude to all authors and reviewers who have contributed their time and effort to make this special issue possible. We hope that this special issue helps current research dealing with urban sprawl, compact and green cities. In particular, we believe that this special issue can contribute to the much demanded holistic science of cities.
