Product description


This collection approaches the idea of 'sustainability' from a number of different, equally viable points of view and contains thought-provoking concepts that are illustrated or supported by data and specific examples. The world would be useful to several kinds of audiences: regional planners, local conservation commissions, ecologists who become involved in urban problems, and academics looking for concrete real-world examples to use in their teaching.--C. John Burke, Smith College
