Product description

Paperback. Minimal if any signs of wear. Book is in fine condition.

This book identifies the major deficiency in the field of environmental planning, which is that issues are addressed from the perspective of one discipline or one dimension. The ABC method outlined in the book provides a holistic framework for analyzing the environment and guiding environmental management. - Dr. Thomas Gunton, Director, Resource and Environmental Planning Program, Simon Fraser University How can we make the best use of the places we live in? In recent years, environmental conservation and sustainable development have become critical parts of the planning equation. However, most attempts to incorporate these considerations have focused too narrowly on specialized economic, geologic, biological, or other factors. With Places, James Gordon Nelson and Patrick L. Lawrence present a new, more complete approach to planning - the ABC method. The ABC method links Abiotic, Biotic, and Cultural factors in a systematic and comprehensive analysis with the aim of achieving better understanding of and planning for the challenges facing places and the people living in them. Examples of the ABC method are presented through international case studies and are illustrated with photographs and maps. Places: Linking Nature and Culture for Understanding and Planning, is written for environmental planners, decision-makers, students, and all those who are concerned about the history and future of places, presenting a new, more highly integrated way of thinking that will help address serious challenges in effective, efficient, and equitable ways.

Calgary, Alberta, Canada: University of Calgary Press, 2009.
