Editorial Reviews


"…this volume focuses on bringing together information from disparate fields into a coherent framework, accessible to transportation planners as well as ecologists."
(Conservation in Practice)

"How many contributors does it take to provide the best thinking and research about how our road systems and our natural environment can coexist? In the case of Road Ecology: Science and Solutions…the answer is 14…. For any planner who deals with natural areas, this book offers a thoughtful and thought-provoking introduction to an unjustifiably neglected field."

As far as I have seen, the only book written specifically on this topic. Useful for preparing NEPA documents related to transportation projects.
