Summary
This book completes Robert G. Bailey's celebrated study of ecoregions, begun in the landmark Ecosystem Geography (1996) and further articulated in Ecoregions (1998). In this third installment, the author expands his system for defining large-scale ecological zones to encompass principles of land management, regional planning, and design. In an engaging, non-technical discussion, he shows how larger patterns and processes that characterize a region - its climate, topography, soils, vegetation, fauna, and human culture - provide essential keys to the sustainability of ecosystems. Ecoregion-Based Design for Sustainability will be welcomed by land and resource managers, landscape architects and urban planners, ecologists, students, and anyone interested in ecology-based design. "Bob Bailey is the man behind the ecosystem mapping of the world." (Lingua Franca Reviews of Ecoregions) "The book provides easy access to the geographic distribution, characteristics, and processes operating behind every major ecosystem in the world." (Geoscience Canada) "For schools and colleges Ecoregions offers an invaluable source of description, interpretation and analysis of global patterns of ecosystem distribution and successfully provides the reader with a means of making sense of these patterns." (Geography) Robert G. Bailey is a geographer with the United States Forest Service in Fort Collins, Colorado, and leader of the agency's Ecosystem Management Analysis Center
