Editorial Reviews

Review

'It should certainly inform practice around the world over the coming years and help to construct the intellectual arguments for much more effective big urban region planning, with much more intelligent ecological consciousness.' esrevs.co.uk

'... an important contribution to the critically important debate about the future planning management of world cities at a time when their population will increase by 2 billion over the next 20 years. ... a timely ... attempt to demonstrate the significance of a spatial and ecological context to solving the problems that lie ahead.' Biologist

'Undoubtedly, the readers will be able to broaden and deepen their knowledge about the critical issues related to urban regions ... a must-have addition not only for theorists but for practitioners, since the intellectual contents of this book could be very informative, practical and even more innovative when combined with their creativity.' Urban Studies Journal

Book Description

Combining ecological science and urban planning, Forman's book features 38 colour maps, a case study of the Barcelona Region, 78 land-use principles as well as a rich array of tangible good and bad land patterns extracted from urban regions worldwide. An essential purchase for students, planners, conservationists and policy makers.
