About this book

First published in 1992, A Planner's Guide for Oak Woodlands was the first such manual of its kind. Designed for professional planners, consultants, and landscape architects, this new edition provides science-based information that can guide decision-making. Chapters cover a range of planning and conservation topics including: Biology of Oak Resources; Wildlife Habitat; Watershed Management; Regional Planning; Mapping Resources and Modeling Risk for Improved Land Use Planning; Ordinances. The 116-page second edition also features a sturdier binding and more photographs. The encroachment into oak woodlands addressed at the time of the first edition has not stopped, and in some cases it has continued at an alarming rate. As more development occurs in the oak woodlands, A Planner's Guide For Oak Woodlands can provide a framework for preserving this icon of the California landscape.
