The Urban Wildlife Landscape is Changing, Great Article. But there’s more to these nocturnal creatures than meets the eyes. How Cities Reshape the Evolutionary Path of Urban Wildlife. By Elissa Nuñez For centuries, bats have been called sinister and spooky, likely because of their beady eyes and razor-sharp fangs.

Urban wildlife is wildlife that can live or thrive in urban environments. Some urban wildlife, such as house mice, are synanthropic, ecologically associated with humans. Some species or populations may become entirely dependent on humans. For instance, the range of many synanthropic species is expanded to latitudes at which they could not survive the winter outside of human settlements.

Urban wildlife is the designation given to animals who are native to forests, but who live amongst the skyscrapers, brownstones, and parks of New York City, home to over 600 different types of wildlife species!

This book will appeal to nature lovers everywhere. In Professor Christopher B. Daniels' A GUIDE tO URBAN WILDLIFE, he introduces you to 250 creatures that live on your street, in your backyard, in the air, at your local beach or even in your house, and takes you on a tour of their world, a world increasingly affected by its interaction with its human neighbours. In this fascinating book, you will learn how to recognise the animals you live among, and learn of their behaviours, communication, eating habits and peculiarities.

All around the world, city life seems increasingly conducive to wildlife. Urban ecology may be a burgeoning new discipline, but wild animals have always lived in cities

All around the world, city life seems increasingly conducive to wildlife. Some animals may be safer among urban populations, which are more sentimental about animals and more squeamish about killing them; they may also be safer because busy urbanites overlook the spectacular nature under their noses: Planet Earth II’s depiction of urban nature included memorable views of leopards quietly stalking past oblivious people in Mumbai. Urban ecology may be a burgeoning new discipline, but wild animals have always lived in cities. Birds and mammals ranged through the cities of ancient Egypt.

Anthropogenic habitats often provide urban wildlife the opportunity to feed on a range of nutritionally diverse foods, which may ultimately lead to human-wildlife conflict. The Australian white ibis (Threskiornis moluccus) provides an exemplar model for examining the nutritional priorities and constraints of a native vertebrate that is successfully transitioning to an urban specialist.
