Summary

Increasingly landscape planning requires an understanding of how the landscape functions. Marsh's book provides a unique integration of landscape architecture, forestry, ecology, and geography.

This Fourth Edition incorporates the rapid expansions taking place in the field. It addresses several topics of concern in both public and private sectors such as flooding wetlands, species conservation, and groundwater. Readers will also discover how physical geography, planning, and landscape architecture relate to environmental problems and issues.

  • An overview of environmental topics as applied to development, land use, and environmental problems of the landscape
  • Focuses on landscape processes, systems, forms, and analysis
  • Places greater emphasis on urban environments and site-scale problems
  • Arms the reader with a collection of best management practices, which can be applied in the field
  • Presents updated case studies that examine planning and design problems
