Ecoregion-Based Design for Sustainability
Bailey, Robert G.
Hardcover XIII, 222 pp, 100 illus, 90 colour ISBN 9780387954295
This book completes Robert G. Bailey's celebrated study of ecoregions, begun in the
landmark Ecosystem Geography (1996) and further articulated in Ecoregions (1998).
In this third installment, the author expands his system for defining large-scale ecological
zones to encompass principles of land management, regional planning, and design. In an
engaging, non-technical discussion, he shows how larger patterns and processes that
characterize a region-its climate, topography, soils, vegetation, fauna, and human
culture-provide essential keys to the sustainability of ecosystems. Regional
Landscape Ecology and Sustainable Design will be welcomed by land and
resource managers, landscape architects and urban planners, ecologists,
students, and anyone interested in ecology-based design. Robert G. Bailey
is a geographer with the United States Forest Service in Fort Collins, Colorado.
