Editorial Reviews

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.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
It is hard to find a book on ecological engineering design. So I was very excited to buy this one as the back cover talks about prescriptive guidelines for sound ecosystem design, management and policy, detailed design and restoration considerations, guidance, etc.
It seems that the publisher never read the book: it is a just compilation of definitions on terms and concepts about the subject illustrated with some basic schemes and theoretical formulas. Nothing practical, just an encyclopedia for scholars. I feel absolutely cheated.
