Principles of Ecological Landscape Design

£19.99

Product description

Today, there is a growing demand for designed landscapes-from public parks to backyards-to be not only beautiful and functional, but also sustainable. With Principles of Ecological Landscape Design , Travis Beck gives professionals and students the first book to translate the science of ecology into design practice. This groundbreaking work explains key ecological concepts and their application to the design and management of sustainable landscapes. It covers topics from biogeography and plant selection to global change. Beck draws on real world cases where professionals have put ecological principles to use in the built landscape. For constructed landscapes to perform as we need them to, we must get their underlying ecology right. Principles of Ecological Landscape Design provides the tools to do just that.
This book is described as offering professionals and students the first book to translate the science of ecology into design practice. It is published by Island Press, a non-profit organisation.
The softback laminated cover is in very good condition with only light shelf damage. The binding is in very good condition. The pages appear clean and unmarked.
Published in 2013 this appears to be a first edition.
