Our species plans. We rely on knowledge, instincts, and gut reactions to guide our decisions. Good plans rely on a careful reading of a place or a situation. Plans require context. Ecology, especially urban ecology, can contribute much to an understanding of place and context in city and regional planning. Planning theorists have connected what we know to what we do. For instance, John Friedmann suggested knowledge should lead to action, while Patrick Geddes placed diagnosis before treatment.
Environmental Planning, Design, and GIS
Urban ecology is the scientific study of the relation of living organisms with each other and their surroundings in the context of an urban environment. The urban environment refers to environments dominated by high-density residential and commercial buildings, paved surfaces , and other urban-related factors that create a unique landscape dissimilar to most previously studied environments in the field of ecology. Urban ecology is a recent field of study compared to ecology as a whole. The methods and studies of urban ecology are similar to and comprise a subset of ecology. However, the types of urban habitats and the species that inhabit them are poorly documented.

Urban planning , also known as regional planning , town planning , city planning , or rural planning , is a technical and political process that is focused on the development and design of land use and the built environment, including air, water, and the infrastructure passing into and out of urban areas , such as transportation , communications , and distribution networks and their accessibility. Sustainable development was added as one of the main goals of all planning endeavors in the late 20th century when the detrimental economic and the environmental impacts of the previous models of planning had become apparent. Similarly, in the early 21st century, Jane Jacob 's writings on legal and political perspectives to emphasize the interests of residents, businesses and communities effectively influenced urban planners to take into broader consideration of resident experiences and needs while planning. Urban planning answers questions about how people will live, work and play in a given area and thus, guides orderly development in urban, suburban and rural areas. Urban planning is a dynamic field since the questions around how people live, work and play changes with time.
Currently popular concepts such as sustainable development and sustainability seek the integration of environment and development planning. However, there is little evidence that this integration is occurring in either mainstream development planning or environmental planning. This is a function of the history, philosophies, and evolved roles of both. A brief review of the experience and results of mainstream planning, environmental planning, and ecosystem science suggests there is much in past scientific and professional practice that is relevant to the goal of integrated planning for environment and development, but still such commonly recommended reforms as systems and multidisciplinary approaches, institutional integration, and participatory, goal-oriented processes are rarely achieved.
This is true whether we are looking at an urban or rural landscapes, both of which provide issues of their own with different sets of data and considerations.
