9780415814157: Phyto: Principles and Resources for Site Remediation and Landscape Design

Currently, phytotechnology planting techniques are employed post site contamination to help clean up already contaminated soil by taking advantage of the positive effects that plants can have upon harmful toxins and chemicals. This book presents a new concept to create planting designs with preventative phytotechnology abilities pre-contamination, ‘phyto-buffering’ where future pollution may be expected with particular site programs.

This is the first book to address the benefits of phytotechnologies from a design point of view, taking complex scientific terms and chemical equations and creating an easy to understand reference book for those involved in creating planting solutions. Filled with tables, photographs and detailed drawings, Kirkwood and Kennan guide the reader through the process of selecting plants for their environmental benefits as well as their aesthetic qualities.

She completed her undergraduate studies in Landscape Architecture at Cornell University, and received her master’s degree in Landscape Architecture with distinction from the Harvard Graduate School of Design. Kate is also a Visiting Lecturer in Landscape Architecture at the Harvard University Graduate School of Design. Previous to opening Offshoots, Kennen worked as an Associate at Design Workshop in Aspen, Colorado.

Descrizione libro Taylor Francis Ltd, United Kingdom, 2015. Paperback. Condizione libro: New. 270 x 218 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Phyto presents the concepts of phytoremediation and phytotechnology in one comprehensive guide, illustrating when plants can be considered for the uptake, removal or mitigation of on-site pollutants. Current scientific case studies are covered, highlighting the advantages and limitations of plant-based cleanup. Typical contaminant groups found in the built environment are explained, and plant lists for mitigation of specific contaminants are included where applicable. This is the first book to address the benefits of phytotechnologies from a design point of view, taking complex scientific terms and translating the research into an easy-to-understand reference book for those involved in creating planting solutions. Typically, phytotechnology planting techniques are currently employed post-site contamination to help clean up already contaminated soil by taking advantage of the positive effects that plants can have upon harmful toxins and chemicals. This book presents a new concept to create projective planting designs with preventative phytotechnology abilities, phytobuffering where future pollution may be expected for particular site programs. Filled with tables, photographs and detailed drawings, Kennen and Kirkwood s text guides the reader through the process of selecting plants for their aesthetic and environmental qualities, combined with their contaminant-removal benefits.
