Urban ecology examines processes and interactions between urban ecosystems and their biophysical and immediate human environment. These ecosystems host vegetated areas with high levels of biodiversity and also provide several goods and services to society. The purpose of this study is to develop a theoretical framework based on a review of relevant literature on urban ecology and urban vegetation. A scenario that allows an integrative approach to urban ecosystems and especially to domestic gardens is developed.
