Abstract: A collection of 18 articles inspired by the Meristem 2007 Forum,
"Restorative Commons for Community Health." The articles include
interviews, case studies, thought pieces, and interdisciplinary
theoretical works that explore the relationship between human health
and the urban environment. This volume is a joint endeavor of Meristem and the U.S. Forest Service Northern Research Station as they work
to strengthen networks of researchers and practitioners to develop
new solutions to persistent and emergent challenges to human health,
well-being, and potential within the urban environment.
