For the landscape designer, conservation-minded planner, and the concerned citizen, this work presents principles and practices to create conceptual and real links in communities across the country." "With illustrative and detailed examples, Green Infrastructure advances smart conservation: large-scale thinking and integrated action to plan, protect, and manage our natural restored lands. Providing both the historical framework for the importance of greenways and green space networks and practical advice on how to design and implement them, Benedict and McMahon's book is a valuable resource for anyone who wants to understand innovative approaches to conservation-minded land use. From the individual parcel to the multi-state region, Green Infrastructure helps us look at the landscape in relation to the many uses it could serve, for nature and people, and determine which uses achieve the most benefits for both."--Jacket." ;
