Species loss again is mainly a matter of land use. The whole world population can fit on the surface of Texas, even with enough land to build a house and have fun. But as humans are spreading everywhere, lots of habitats are lost. Thus it is a matter of world wide urban planning, letting large parts of habitat really wild.

Key term(s)
  • world-wide urban planning


  • Urbanisme
  • Sociologie urbaine

L'aménagement de l'espace. [...] On a vu forger, à partir de 1930, les composés : urbanisme rural, urbanisme régional, urbanisme national et même [...] lorsqu'on a compris qu'il n'y avait plus de problème partiel, qu'on ne pouvait plus espérer se sauver seul : urbanisme mondial. Présentement, l'urbanisme désigne donc l'aménagement du sol à toutes les échelles, l'étude de toutes les formes de localisations humaines sur la terre.
