“These constantly arriving foreign inhabitants form the first of at least four explanations for the high biodiversity urban naturalists are encountering in their cities. A second explanation is the fact that the places where people like to build their settlements, which then grow into cities, are often biologically rich areas to begin with.”
Menno Schilthuizen, Darwin Comes to Town: How the Urban Jungle Drives Evolution

“A third source of urban biological richness is, in fact, the loss of good-quality habitat immediately outside the city perimeter.”
Menno Schilthuizen, Darwin Comes to Town: How the Urban Jungle Drives Evolution

“The fourth and final explanation for the rich biodiversity of cities is the sheer diversity of habitat patches.”
