Ekologia miejska, to stosunkowo nowa interdyscyplinarna dziedzina, kształtująca się dzięki dokonaniom nauk socjologicznych, ekonomicznych, politycznych i biologicznych. Tak szerokie podejście umożliwia wielowymiarowe zrozumienie funkcjonowania miast, które stają się coraz częstszym elementem krajobrazu. W niniejszej pracy zaprezentowane zostały różne aspekty dotyczące ekologii miejskiej w kontekście nauk biologicznych. Omówiono oddziaływanie człowieka na środowisko naturalne związane z szybkim rozwojem miast. Przedstawiono również historię i kierunki badań ekologii miejskiej oraz wybrane, mniej znane aspekty badań ekologicznych w mieście (zanieczyszczenie światłem i syndrom miejskiego strumienia). Przedyskutowano także problem miast zlokalizowanych w centrach różnorodności biologicznej oraz przedstawiono kierunki i perspektywy badań ekologicznych w mieście.

Urban ecology is a relatively new interdisciplinary domain of knowledge, which is developing in conjunction with sociological, economic, political and biological sciences. Such a broad approach enables to understand multidimensional functioning of cities, which is getting to be a more common element of landscape.
In this paper different aspects of urban ecology in the context of biological sciences are presented. Discussed is influence of humans on environment in connection with the rapid development of cities. Also the history of urban ecology and less known selected aspects of ecological studies (light pollution, urban stream syndrome) are presented. In the end, the problems of cities located in biodiversity hot spots and perspectives of ecological research in the cities are discussed.
