For this assignment, answer the following:

Explain what is meant by urban ecology. You need to refer to the textbook and the PowerPoint.

Explain each of the different models of the city. You can refer to the textbook for this section. What are the limitations of each of these models?   Which model do you think is most applicable to Houston? Why?

Explain what is meant by invasion and succession . What are some examples of invasion and succession? These can be hypothetical examples.(This doesn’t mean invasion of one country by another as in times of war–it has a different definition in urban sociology).
