The first part of the book surveys the ecological implications of various rural land uses, urban and industrial development, transport systems and man-made lakes. Factors which influence the compatibility of different enterprises are considered. The environmental impact of air traffic systems, of road traffic systems, including the effect of noise, pollution and road routeing, and the spread of pests and disease by transport are discussed. The second part of the book shows how the planning strategy adopted for an entire region can be analysed comprehensively in ecological terms. It is illustrated by four case studies from contrasting areas: a coastal development area, an area of industrial dereliction, a British national park and an urban growth centre in the tropics. /TRRL/
