These include plant nutrients and parasites in soil, gaseous emissions from soil, pollutant metals and xenobiotics in waste and contaminated land, salt in groundwater and species abundances above ground.

    by Hemant Ojha, Andy Hall, Rasheed Sulaiman V

    The purpose of this book is to showcase a range of approaches that consider learning and collaboration as central processes in agriculture and natural resources governance and management.

While the main focus in the Olympic Park as a whole is on native biodiversity and ecological approaches, the 2012 gardens explore the horticultural diversity of British gardens and take visitors on a tour of the biodiversity hotspots of the world that have been the major source of plants for UK gardeners over the past 600 years.

  7. Shaping Places (August 2012)

    Review of Shaping Places
    "In the dark days of public sector retrenchment and the loss of a progressive role for planning it’s more important than ever that our understanding of place making is not forgotten. David Adams and Steve Tiesdell have spent the last decade exploring successful places. Shaping Places is the culmination of that work. In what will undoubtedly become a key text Shaping Places assembles a wide range of international research and experiences around the processes of making socially, environmentally and economically successful places." - Phil Allmendinger, Professor of Land Economy and Head of the Department of Land Economy, University of Cambridge
