Excerpt from Planting in Urban Soils Planting in Urban Soils was designed and compiled to supply basic soils and plant information for the industrial or municipal landscape gardener and for the homeowner. This bulletin Will also be helpful to those instructing classes in plant handling techniques. Heretofore, agri cultural extension publications and similar bulletins have covered only one aspect of soils or planting procedures. The publication gathers to gether information on soil sampling and landscape planning, climate, plant selection, planting and maintenance.

With more than 50% of the world’s population already living in towns and cities, migration from rural areas continuing at an alarming rate in developing countries and suburbanisation using more and more land in developed countries, the urban environment has become supremely important with regard to human health and wellbeing. For centuries, urbanisation has caused relatively low level soil conta- nation mainly by various wastes. However, from the time of the Industrial Revolution onwards, both the scale of urban development and the degree of soil contamination rapidly increased and involved an ever widening spectrum of c- taminants. With constraints on the supply of land for new urban development in many countries, it is becoming increasingly necessary to re-use previously dev- oped (brownfield) sites and to deal with their accompanying suites of contaminants. It is therefore essential to fully understand the diversity and properties of urban soils, to assess the possible risks from the contaminants they contain and devise ways of cleaning up sites and/or minimizing hazards. The author, Helmut Meuser, is Professor of Soil Protection and Soil Clean-up at the University of Applied Sciences, Osnabrück and is one of Europe’s foremost experts on contamination from technogenic materials in urban soils. He has many years’ experience of research in Berlin, Essen, Osnabrück, other regions of Germany, and several other countries.

Development And Perspectives Of Landscape Ecology

The book gives a fundamental representation of landscape ecology, which proves to be a young, but an interesting and very important trans-disciplinary science for the solution of environmental problems. Both the theoretical basis and practical application of landscape ecology are considered. Great value is attached to describe approaches and experiences from Germany and Central Europe, and to discuss them in an international context. The book is addressed to landscape planners, managers, conservationists and architects, to biologists and geographers, to colleges, universities, authorities, and to the general public being interested in ecological issues. Among the themes are e. g. the roots and the position of landscape ecology, problems of scale and dimension, landscape analysis, diagnosis, potentials, evaluation, change, prognosis, tools like remote sensing and information systems, spatial planning and nature conservation.

Nowhere on Earth is the challenge for ecological understanding greater, and yet more urgent, than in those parts of the globe where human activity is most intense - cities. This book is a first of its kind effort to bring together leaders in the biological, physical and social dimensions of urban ecosystem research with leading education researchers, administrators and practitioners, to show how an understanding of urban ecosystems is vital for urban dwellers to grasp the fundamentals of ecological and environmental science and to understand their own environment.

Excerpt from Seeds of Woody Plants in the United States Trees and shrubs also are planted to improve the habitat of wildlife and to protect the soil from erosion by wind or water. In urban areas, planting is done to improve the environment of man by ameliorating the effects of heat, wind, dust, and noise; and by screening or beautifying the urban landscape. A knowledge of woody plant seeds is essential for producing the seed lings needed in all of these applications. The information in this handbook is presented in two parts. An understanding of the principles and general methods presented in Part 1 will facilitate effective use of the detailed informa tion in Part 2. Part 1 includes a chapter on seed biology followed by 7 chapters on the principles and general methods of producing, handling.
