Key points reinforce the importance of understanding the niche, climate, and ecological conditions to design a naturally sustained landscape."Check out the video review --Daniel Halsey "Amazon.com Customer Review "

Kurzbeschreibung

Today, there is a growing demand for designed landscapes—from public parks to backyards—to be not only beautiful and functional, but also sustainable. Sustainability means more than just saving energy and resources. It requires integrating the landscapes we design with ecological systems. 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 biogeography and plant selection, assembling plant communities, competition and coexistence, designing ecosystems, materials cycling and soil ecology, plant-animal interactions, biodiversity and stability, disturbance and succession, landscape ecology, and global change. Beck draws on real world cases where professionals have put ecological principles to use in the built landscape.
 
The demand for this information is rising as professional associations like the American Society of Landscape Architects adopt new sustainability guidelines (SITES). But the need goes beyond certifications and rules. 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.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The best compendium of interdisciplinary design I've found. 7. Juni 2014
Von J. Brooks - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
I'm a grad student in landscape architecture and I have a masters in planning and community design, as well. I also have a well-rounded education in restoring and rehabing many different habitats. In short, I've read A LOT of literature on ecological design as it relates to ecological restoration.This has been a very expensive endeavor and I still didn't learn as much from all those courses as I did from reading this book. I read it cover to cover without skipping around and found it to be written at a really relateable level for people new to ecological design and those of us exposed to extensive theory. It builds concepts nicely and discusses them in the context of case studies, but it feel more like story telling - if stories were based in science. Beck lays concepts out at a nice speed and links them together with discussions of the seminal writings in ecology that everyone working in this field should know and reference in their own work. Beck discusses more very important - must know - theory and application in less than 300 pages than I learned in 7 or 8 various ecology courses over several years. If you are just getting into ecological design this is an excellent read and reference book. If you just finished an interdisciplinary scramble of high level ecology and need a key to fit all those puzzle pieces together - this is your book. I'm very happy with it.

3.0 von 5 Sternen needs color 18. November 2013
Von Ben - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Would get 5 stars if it had color pictures. I have print and kindle edition, both are in black and white. It's near impossible to pick out plant species from a landscape b&w scenic photo. Captions imply the book was once printed in color.
5.0 von 5 Sternen Excellent review of ecological approaches 16. August 2013
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
This book gives a good background in ecology and then points out ways of using the kind of thinking that ecology excels at, and directs the landscape designer in using that mode of analysis.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Avery very helpful Book 8. Juli 2013
Von Ann L. Deluty - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
I am reading this cover to cover and while a lot of it is familiar from diffeent courses it is helpfulto have it all under one cover. There are also a number of ideas that I had not considered before.
