Ecological Networks and Greenways

The establishment of ecological networks in Europe and greenways in America has required application of the principles of landscape ecology to land use planning. This book provides a thorough overview of recent developments, combining theoretical concepts of landscape ecology with the practice of landscape planning and management. In addition to biological and physical considerations for biodiversity protection and restoration, equal coverage is given to cultural and aesthetic issues illustrating how sustainable land use policies can be implemented.
