Green Infrastructure: Linking Landscapes and Communities Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:


With illustrative and detailed examples drawn from throughout the country, Green Infrastructure advances smart land conservation: large scale thinking and integrated action to plan, protect and manage our natural and restored lands. From the individual parcel to the multi-state region, Green Infrastructure helps each of us look at the landscape in relation to the many uses it could serve, for nature and people, and determine which use makes the most sense.

In this wide-ranging primer, leading experts in the field provide a detailed how-to for planners, designers, landscape architects, and citizen activists.

Book News Annotation:

For landscape designers and planners, this book details land conservation using green infrastructure, an interconnected network of natural areas and open spaces that conserves the natural ecosystem, sustains air and water, and benefits people and wildlife. The authors describe the planning and design approaches used with green infrastructure, its principles, benefits, implementation, the basics of network design, using resources, and management and stewardship. Benedict works at The Conservation Fund and McMahon works in sustainable development at the Urban Land Institute.
