SBSE ... I have the same general question as Dorothy Gerring, specific to a
systems-based course textbook on urbanized ecosystems, or cities as
ecosystems. Instead of cobbling together journal articles, book chapters
and an assortment of resources for the past 15 years, I have finally
decided on completing a course module-based eBook myself, using a 'campus
as a lab for sustainability' framework, complete with a digital platform
for assignments, interactive content, and course management tools.

So far, I have been intrigued with Trunity Trubooks, but would like to be
more informed on the appropriate publisher / self-publishing options.
