Cities as refugia

Mark McDonnell, writing for The Nature of Cities:

The take-home message from our Australian experience is that everyone should seriously consider what species are being planted in cities and towns around the world and it is possible to plant species that will, in the future, provide valuable resources for threatened and endangered species.  Cities and towns definitely have the potential of becoming important refugia for threatened species’ in the future.
