Summary
"Roads and Ecological Infrastructure is the first book to focus on improving outcomes where transportation needs and small animal habitats overlap. Taking an even-handed approach in exploring challenges and solutions from both transportation and ecological perspectives, the volume covers various themes including animal behavior related to roads, the impacts of roads in sensitive areas, and design approaches that mitigate the negative effects of highways on wildlife. The chapter authors - from transportation experts to university researchers - each promote the goal of realistic problem solving. Conceptual and practical, this book will influence the next decade or beyond of road design in ecologically sensitive areas and should prevent countless unnecessary wildlife fatalities." -- book cover
