About this book

Green infrastructure integrates human and natural systems through a network of corridors and spaces in mixed-use and urban settings. Austin takes a broad look at green infrastructure concepts, research and case studies to provide the student and professional with processes, criteria and data to support planning, design and implementation.

Key topics of Green Infrastructure for Landscape Planning include:
- The benefit of green infrastructure as a conservation and planning tool
- Requirements of ecosystem health
- Green infrastructure ecosystem services that contribute to human physical and psychological health
- Planning processes leading to robust green infrastructure networks
- Design of green infrastructure elements for multiple uses

The concept of ecosystem services is extensively developed in Green Infrastructure for Landscape Planning, including biological treatment of stormwater and wastewater, opportunities for recreation, urban agriculture and emersion in a naturalistic setting. It defines planning and design processes as well as the political and economic facets of envisioning, funding and implementing green infrastructure networks. Green Infrastructure for Landscape Planning differs from others on the market by presenting the technical issues, requirements and performance of green infrastructure elements, along with the more traditional recreation and wildlife needs associated with greenway planning, providing information derived from environmental engineering to guide planners and landscape architects.
