[English Below] Wonderful announce from Springer. Thank you for introducing our new book!
”Urban Biodiversity and Ecological Design for Sustainable Cities”(Editor: Keitaro Ito, Springer 2021)
In this book, we focus on urban biodiversity and landscape design, not only through academic discussion but also practical approaches by landscape designers and activists. We also discuss planning and management for urban green spaces and their functions, describing the fascinating interaction between European and Asian urban biodiversity researchers, planners, and landscape architects.
Each contributor provides a unique perspective on the relationship between nature and people in urban areas, and the ecosystem and biodiversity in urban areas and how to manage them.
The structure of the book is:
[Part Ⅰ] Landscape Design and Urban Biodiversity: Practical landscape design and implementation given by landscape designers and activists.
[Part Ⅱ] Landscape Management for Biodiversity in Urban areas: More wide-ranging discussion about landscape planning and management
[Part Ⅲ] Towards Ecological Landscape ecology and planning for future cities: Future visions for landscape ecology and planning in urban areas are presented and discussed.
