Ecologically Sustainable Transportation: Planning, Building, and Operations provides transportation researchers, practitioners, and policy makers with a consistent and cohesive examination of the local, regional, and national environmental issues in sustainable transportation systems planning, development, and implementation. Ecologically Sustainable Transportation compiles numerous topics together in one resource to bridge the gap between the study and practice of these interdisciplinary fields. The book is an accessible resource for transportation professionals on basic ecology principles, connecting the academic and technical literature to the practice of transportation road ecology. Helping to define the environment component of sustainable transportation, Ecologically Sustainable Transportation focuses on ecological planning, mitigation, and monitoring in several dimensions of transportation systems. Engaging those who make transportation decisions currently or in the future, Ecologically Sustainable Transportation offers practical insights and guidance on the entire spectrum of road ecology issues within the context of sustainable transportation systems. Uniquely includes coverage of the relationship between road systems and climate change Targets the needs of both researchers and practitioners to support multiple levels of knowledge and expertise Interdisciplinary integration of transportation, sustainability, and ecological academic research with applied usage Teaching and learning aids such as case studies, chapter objectives, dialogue boxes, glossary, text boxes and online teaching resources
