A guide to dispelling myths and taking action for urban practitioners. This action orientated report synthesises the discussion and recommendations from the Urban Nature: Urban Myth? Symposium (City of Melbourne May 11 and 12 2023).

This Playbook for Urban Biodiversity was produced by the Melbourne Centre for Cities at the University of Melbourne, as a key output from the Urban Nature: Urban Myths Symposium co-hosted with the City of Melbourne - 11 and 12 May 2023.

This Playbook is intended to inform practice and policy on biodiversity in cities, with a particular focus on Melbourne and other Australian cities, using content presented by collaborating authors at the Symposium, supplemented by an extensive literature review. The lead authors have sought to ensure the accuracy of the material in this document, but they, the Centre, and the University of Melbourne will not be liable for any issues incurred through the use of this report.
