About this book

Featuring contributions from experts drawn from a wide range of disciplines, this book discusses the remediation of degraded environments such as industrial landfills, mining sites, buried urban rivers, seriously polluted or effectively destroyed wetlands, Superfund sites, and abandoned factories. The book brings the environmental perspectives of landscape architects and urban planners to a wider audience. It also examines how physical landscape restoration facilitates urban renewal. This is the first book to explore in detail the multi-faceted roles played by design professionals and scientists in restoring or remediating degraded landscapes for both wildlife and humans.
