In Welcome to Subirdia, John Marzluff reveals that our suburbs and city parks are often remarkably rich in bird diversity—holding more species than either wilderness areas or urban centers. In fact, suburbs may play a key role in preventing loss of species in the face of the dramatic disruptions of climate change and other human impacts. Welcome to Subirdia shows us how! Please join us to learn how some birds are adapting and thriving in moderately urban ecosystems, often evolving before our eyes.The ways we manage our property, plan our towns, and think about the nonhuman residents of our ecosystems can make a difference for our children and grandchildren.
