Since the first publication of this landmark textbook in 2004, it has received high praise for its clear, comprehensive, and practical approach. The second edition continues to offer a unique framework for teaching and learning interdisciplinary environmental planning, incorporating the latest thinking, newest research findings, and numerous, updated case studies into the solid foundation of the first edition. The book has been reorganised based on feedback from instructors, and contains a new chapter entitled "Land Use, Energy, Air Quality, and Climate Change." Throughout, boxes have been added on such topics as laws and local environmental programmes, and critical problems and responses. This new edition addresses three broad subject areas. Part I, "Environmental Planning and Management," provides an overview of the field, along with the fundamentals of land use planning, and presents a collaborative approach to environmental planning. Part II, "Sustainable Land Use Principles and Planning Analysis," considers environmental and geospatial information; soils, topography, and land use; stream flow, flooding, and runoff; stormwater management and stream restoration; groundwater hydrology; landscape ecology; wildlife habitats and biodiversity; energy, air quality, and climate change; and methods for land analysis. Part III, "Managing Watersheds, Ecosystems, and Development to Achieve Sustainable Communities," explains the principles of ecosystem management, restoration, and protection; land conservation; and the mitigation of natural hazards. With this thoroughly revised second edition, "Environmental Land Use Planning and Management" maintains its pre-eminence as the leading textbook in its field.
