By: O'Callaghan, J. R
Material type: TextTextPublisher: London ; New York : Chapman & Hall, 1996Edition: 1st edDescription: vii, 200 p. : ill., maps ; 26 cmISBN: 041261720XSubject(s): Land use -- Planning | Land use -- Great Britain -- PlanningDDC classification: 333.73
Contents:
The land use problem -- The economic model -- Hydrological modelling -- Landscape ecology and land use -- Decision support systems: the NELUP example -- Deintensification of agriculture: an evaluation of two land-use strategies -- Forestry developments in the uplands and lowlands -- The marginal value and hydrological impact of agricultural irrigation: a representative farm-level case study for the Cam river catchment -- Discussion -- The catchments of the Rivers Tyne and Cam.
Summary: This book pioneers a spatial approach to the problems of land use by bringing together models in economics, ecology and hydrology, and summarizes the results of innovative research funded by the United Kingdom's Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) and Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC). Ideas of economic value which bring about most changes in land use are linked with the biophysical processes in the environment likely to be affected as a result of these changes.Summary: The book demonstrates, with the aid of case studies, how these models can be combined into a strategic system for guiding decision making and analysing land use policies.
