Concrete Jungle: A Pop Media Investigation of Death & Survival in Urban Ecosystems
Mark Dion (ed); Alexis Rockman (ed). In the late 19th century, Eugene Scheifflin, amateur ornithologist & Shakespeare enthusiast, had a plan: to inventory, import & naturalize every bird mentioned by Shakespeare. Unfortunately for North American farmers & indigenous birds, “Henry IV, Part I” contains a reference to the starling. In 1890, Scheifflin released 40 pairs of European starlings into Central Park. It took the starlings just 55 years to establish themselves from coast to coast & north to Alaska, decimating many native species, including the bluebird. This illustrated book examines this story & myriad other examples of the unpredictable mutations & side-effects that have taken place as urban environments & Nature meet & sometimes collide.
