The evolution of humans

City ecology and climate change

Berlin is the greenest and most biodiverse capital in Europe. Even the inner city is home to a wide variety of plants and animals. Indigenous as well as exotic species continue to expend further into the city, conquering new terrain. A guided tour focused on urban ecology introduces many such inner-city inhabitants and explains how they adapted to life in the city. The emphasis lies on visible signs of climate change and how it affects plants, animals and humans in Berlin.
