Abstract

Agnes van den Berg wrote an essay about human health and nature, establishing that subject as an important policy argument in developing (urban) nature in the Netherlands. She studied the public balance of fear and fascination for nature, summarising benefits on human health. In this chapter, she adds disadvantages urban ecologists should take into account discussing urban nature in the context of a municipal policy debate
