Responding to concerns about the environment, landscape managers and developers are using extensive naturalistic plantings to restore habitats degraded by building, development, or overuse. This book is the definitive guide to habitat creation and repair; it includes discussions of ethics, theory, and general principles, along with the practical details of designing habitats for wildlife. The authors, who have been working and teaching in the field for many years, draw on a wealth of practical experience--as well as an in-depth knowledge of the widely scattered literature--to provide an authoritative and accessible account of this rapidly developing subject. From coastal and freshwater ecosystems to mountains, forest, and grasslands, the book contains specific chapters on most of the major habitat types. The authors give advice on deciding when habitat creation is the correct path to follow, and then cover all steps from site survey through to the final design and actual realization of the scheme. A useful resource for professionals, this volume is ideal as a textbook for advanced undergraduate and graduate courses in ecology, landscape architecture, resource management, and environmental science.... fuchsii) 88 Ouse Washes 222 oversowing existing dull grassland 88 owl barn ( Tyto alba) 57, 197, 200 short-eared 57 (Asio flammeus) ox-eye daisy 11.60, 78.91 Oxleas Wood 2 oxygen demand, biological, ... 14, 50 pH (soils/water) 21, 26, 30.
