Ecotechnology is the application of ecological engineering principles and methods. This book details a new approach to dealing with humans' impact on nature, stressing the need for a symbiotic relationship between humans and their natural environment. It covers ecological modeling, as well as economic, ecological and educational aspects of ecological engineering. Case studies are included illustrating applications in aquatic ecosystems, hydrological modification, pollution control, wetland management, and lake, reservoir, and stream restoration. The volume will be of benefit to ecologists, environmental scientists, environmental engineers and biologists.

Ecological engineering involves the design, construction and management of ecosystems that have value to both humans and the environment. It is a rapidly developing discipline that provides a promising technology to solve environmental problems. "Ecological Engineering" covers the basic theory of ecological engineering as well as the application of these principles in environmental management. It provides an overview of the theory and application of environmental engineering. International focus and range of ecosystems makes "Ecological Engineering" an indispensable resource to scientists. It is based on the best-selling "Encyclopedia of Ecology". Full-color figures and tables support the text and aid in understanding.

Ecologically-sensitive building and landscape design is abroad, intrinsically interdisciplinary field. Existing books independently cover narrow aspects of ecological design in depth (hydrology, ecosystems, soils, flora and fauna, etc.), but none of these books can boast of the integrated approach taken by this one. Drawing on the experience of the authors, this book begins to define explicit design methods for integrating consideration of ecosystem processes and services into every facet of land use design, management, and policy. The approach is to provide a prescriptive approach to ecosystem design based upon ecological engineering principles and practices. This book will include a novel collection of design methods for the non-built and built environments, linking landscape design explicitly to ecosystem services.

The new science of ecological engineering is winning increasing acceptance all over the world. Established industrial economies like Sweden and the United States are investing more in it as initial skepticism and regulatory hurdles are giving way to burgeoning investments by companies and municipalities, increased research activity, and great interest by the public. Less-developed countries are investigating inexpensive and effective ways to build their wastewater treatment infrastructure with ecological engineering. Eastern European countries and the former Soviet Union are turning to ecological engineering to solve their acute pollution problems. Ecological Engineering for Wastewater Treatment, Second Edition, presents comprehensive coverage of topics ranging from wastewater source separation at the household level to the use of huge, natural wetlands. It is an updated description of the state of the art, intended as a tool for teaching and inspiring the management of wastewater as a resource, one of the keys to sustainable development. In this Second Edition, existing chapters have been updated, new chapters have been added, and a comprehensive index has been added.

This book presents an introduction, overview and extension of ecosystem management and environmental restoration principles and applications. It develops a new framework and approach to improving the environment through extensive case studies and analysis of environmental rehabilitation initiatives in the San Francisco Bay-Delta, Florida Everglades, Columbia River Basin in the Pacific Northwest, and the Green Heart region of western Netherlands. The book's comparative and integrative approach, with its grounding in ecology, engineering and management, will appeal to those working wherever population, resources and environment are in conflict.

The U.S. Department of Energy (USDOE) is responsible for remediation of environmental contamination and long-term stewardship of sites associated with the legacy of nuclear weapons production during the Cold War in the United States. Protection of human health and the environment will be required for hundreds or even thousands of years at many legacy sites. USDOE continually evaluates and applies advances in science and technology to improve the effectiveness and sustainability of surface and groundwater remedies (USDOE 2011). This paper is a synopsis of ecological engineering applications that USDOE is evaluating to assess the effectiveness of remedies at former uranium processing sites in the southwestern United States. Ecological engineering remedies are predicated on the concept that natural ecological processes at legacy sites, once understood, can be beneficially enhanced or manipulated. Advances in tools for characterizing key processes and for monitoring remedy performance are demonstrating potential. We present test cases for four ecological engineering remedies that may be candidates for international applications.

This volume focuses on wastewater treatment that includes a recycling loop for water, nutrients, energy and other resources in the wastewater. The preliminary indications are that decentralized, re-circulating systems of wastewater treatment can be significantly cheaper than building and maintaining the conventional systems. Someday wastewater will be an antiquated expression, synonymous with "wasting water". The present-day systems of throwing away the majority of the nitrogen, phosphorus and other nutrients, plus organic matter in wastewater will be regarded as primitive, like the early computer scientists "throwing away" so much space with their large ungainly machines. It will be considered as natural to reuse wastewater's resources as it is now for farmers to plow their wheat stubble back into the ground. Ideas for new ways of treating wastewater are beginning to be accepted more and more.

"Engineering within Ecological Constraints" presents a rare dialogue between engineers and environmental scientists as they consider the many technical as well as social and legal challenges of ecologically sensitive engineering. The volume looks at the concepts of scale, resilience, and chaos as they apply to the points where the ecological life support system of nature interacts with the technological life support system created by humankind. Among the questions addressed are: what are the implications of differences between ecological and engineering concepts of efficiency and stability? How can engineering solutions to immediate problems be made compatible with long-term ecological concerns? How can we transfer ecological principles to economic systems? The book also includes important case studies on such topics as water management in southern Florida and California and oil exploration in rain forests. From its conceptual discussions to the practical experience reflected in case studies, this volume will be important to policymakers, practitioners, researchers, educators, and students in the fields of engineering, environmental science, and environmental policy.
