Editorial Reviews

Landscape Architecture - Joshua F. Walter
"The book should serve to initiate and renew efforts toward better watershed management, but the text also has broader implications for other environmental issues. Students and professionals will find it a useful work, as will community organizations and the general public."
June 2005 Scitech Book News
France brings together perspectives from innovators in watershed management to introduce the diversity of sociological, pedagogical, phenomenological tools needed to implement watershed management in the real world. The editor's section overviews and responses to each chapter link ideas presented to other chapters and sections of the book. Each chapter includes discussion questions and suggestions for activities, useful for both students and practitioners.
