Amid the hustle of daily life, urban biodiversity is hardly noticed. Despite this, biodiversity remains resilient, an ever-present factor in urban life.

In fact, science-related programs and career tracks have been motivated by employment while research, development, and communication have been less integrated. As in baseball, no matter how great the pitcher is, the catcher must be good as well. Otherwise, the game is not good.
The issue of car dependency is not confined to an individual scale: a person choosing to use their car is not a problem in itself, but rather when millions of people choose to do so. As a result, unforeseen consequences came and became prevalent, with some more obvious than others.
