It reviews, explains, and poses questions about monitoring, substrate, living components, and the abiotic, biotic, and cultural aspects connecting green roofs to the fields of community, landscape, and urban ecology. The work contains examples of green roof venues that demonstrate the focus, level of detail, and techniques needed to understand the structure, function, and impact of these novel ecosystems. Representing a seminal compilation of research and technical knowledge about green roof ecology and how functional attributes can be enhanced, it delves to explore the next wave of evolution in green technology and defines potential paths for technological advancement and research."@en ;
