Su questo libro:


The last forty years have seen the destruction of a huge proportion of flora and fauna in marshes, wet meadows, ponds, and river banks. This has happened largely as a result of enormous public investment in land drainage, carried out by water authorities, councils, and individual farmers. As a practical landscape architect working in the Water Industry, Jeremy Purseglove has been actively involved in building a wider brief for land drainage engineers so that they can enhance, rather than destroy, the heritage of our rivers and wetlands. "Taming the Flood" draws extensively on this experience, not only analyzing the conflicting demands made on rivers and wetlands, but also outlining practical proposals for their protection and use.

L'autore: Jeremy Purseglove was born in 1949 and spent his childhood in Singapore, Trinidad and Kent. He helped to pioneer a new approach to the way we manage our rivers, having worked as an environmentalist in the water industry for over a decade. Taming the Flood, first published in 1986, is based on his personal experience and on the research he did for a television series, which he also presented. In 1989 he left the water industry to join the engineering company Mott MacDonald. In this capacity he worked in the UK and throughout the world integrating civil engineering schemes with the environment. He lives in Cambridge.
