Principles of Ecological Landscape Design Summary

Principles of Ecological Landscape Design by Travis Beck

Today, there is a growing demand for designed landscapes - from public parks to back gardens - 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.
