About the Author

John W. Dover is Professor of Ecology at Staffordshire University, Stoke-on-Trent, UK.


"This book comes at exactly the right time. The term 'Green Infrastructure' symbolizes new thinking in relation to planning and constructing cities. Vegetation offers many benefits to urban dwellers, and now is the time to integrate this knowledge into city planning procedures. Around the world, examples of GI now exist and national and international associations support and disseminate such ideas. This textbook highlights many such examples to introduce the concepts to a wider audience. I wish this book as many readers as possible; first of all students of related disciplines to take these ideas as seed into their future business lives, and also urban developers to integrate this new thinking into their daily business to spread out more green than grey infrastructure around the globe." – Manfred Koehler, Professor of Landscape Ecology, University of Applied Sciences Neubrandenburg, Germany, President of the World Green Infrastructure Network. "This is a very thoughtful, timely and comprehensive book. If our cities are to be considered as being truly sustainable then the integrated provision of green spaces will be a vital component of that sustainability. Green Infrastructure will help us to do just that." – Richard Sabin, Director, Living Green City, UK."This book is a useful addition to recognising key elements of urban ecology and what they can contribute" - David Walton, Bulletin of the British Ecological Society."Global in scope, pioneering in summarising the diverse concepts involved, encyclopedic in coverage, and modern, well-referenced and thought–provoking in its content, this clearly written text will become a classic as the psychological and physical health of urban people is progressively recognised as depending on their living environments. Numerous colour photographs and a variety of tables and diagrams enhance the text, and some 40 pages of references enable comprehensive further enquiry." - T.R. New, La Trobe University, Australia, in Journal of Insect Conservation (2016).
