The need for a multidisciplinary approach to the design and adaptive management of constructed wetlands is illustrated by case examples of channel form and function in a variety of wetland types.

Proposal for urban forest health monitoring in the United States. The need for a multidisciplinary approach to the design and adaptive management of constructed wetlands is illustrated by case examples of channel form and function in a variety of wetland types. Channels in wetland systems are typically viewed simply as conduits of water inflow and outflow.

The goal of urban forestry is to understand the ecological, institutional, and human issues at work in the urban landscape. Urban forestry is a comparatively new field within the academic discipline of forestry, and is closely allied to several scientific disciplines as well as the social sciences. Professionals in the field are called upon to provide scientific information and guidance, and to justify in economic, social, and environmental terms the value of the urban landscape in relation to other uses of the land and other needs of the city.

The multidisciplinary approach of this book recognizes the dilemma that in the attempt to solve problems by developing landscapes that address specific goals such as fire safety, energy and water conservation, and wildlife preservation, other problems are sometimes created because scientific knowledge is lacking or because not all aspects of the situation have been considered. Urban Forest Landscapes takes a critical look ath the current state of knowledge and research in the field, and how available information is applied in the urban setting.

The book includes contributions by twenty specialists. Several articles outline the development of urban forestry in urban environments in the European and North American cultural tradition. Others consider the environmental setting: the level of scientific knowledge, public policy, and perceptions of land management needs, political and administrative issues, and economic approaches. Another group of articles discuss scenic value, management of greenbelts and forest remnants, wildlife habitat design, energy-efficent landscapes, water conservation, and fire-safe landscapes. A final section focuses on sustainability of urban forest landscapes, both from a conceptual perspective and by presenting two practical case studies of managed forests in an urban environment.
