9780470345146: Ecological Engineering Design: Restoring and Conserving Ecosystem Services

Ecologically-sensitive building and landscape design is a broad, intrinsically interdisciplinary field.  Existing books independently cover narrow aspects of ecological design in depth (hydrology, ecosystems, soils, flora and fauna, etc.), but none of these books can boast of the integrated approach taken by this one.  Drawing on the experience of the authors, this book begins to define explicit design methods for integrating consideration of ecosystem processes and services into every facet of land use design, management, and policy.  The approach is to provide a prescriptive approach to ecosystem design based upon ecological engineering principles and practices.  This book will include a novel collection of design methods for the non-built and built environments, linking landscape design explicitly to ecosystem services.

From the Back Cover:

the single-source guide to sustainable ecosystem design for the twenty-first century

Ecologically sensitive building neces-sitates synchronization across many disciplines. Ecological Engineering Design attempts to unify efforts toward greening the future by providing a comprehensive overview of emerging ecological engineering practices within an explicit ecosystem design context. Straightforward and filled with useful examples, this endlessly informative guide draws on the experience of its authors to bring focus to innovative strategies for preserving, restoring, and creating ecosystem services that allow environmental dynamics to thrive and flourish.

Ecological Engineering Design:

  • Presents, for the first time, prescriptive guidelines for sound ecosystem design, as well as management and policy

  • Details critical considerations in the design and restoration process of ecosystem services applicable across broad geographic, ecological, and cultural contexts

  • Includes real-world case studies that reinforce theoretical concepts and demonstrate the practicality of the design methods

  • Provides guidance on environmentally low-impact development and urban ecosystem design

By emphasizing the role of architectural expression in securing the fragile links that exist between humanity and nature, Ecological Engineering Design addresses a growing global concern and maps out a cohesive plan for confronting environmental challenges. A calming remedy for establishing and maintaining sustainable prosperity, this illuminating text is an important tool for advancing the field of ecological engineering.
