About the book

Landscape architecture covers a wide range of topics like landscape design, landscape planning, townscapes, urban design, urban landscapes, rural planning, rural development, sustainable development, vegetation conservation, vegetation condition, plant sciences, etc. It is a much more modern development that proves landscape arrangements to create healthy, more livable and natural context approaches in our living environment.
Frederick Law Olmsted, who is considered the father of American landscape architecture, often commented that landscape architecture is a profession that creates natural design approaches in human interaction with the environment.
Landscape design answers the people's need for parks and gardens in urban areas.

It is a necessary design tool to understand to make more livable places in our living environment. Landscape Planning gives an option to protect our natural resources and natural environment. It draws a balance between the use and protection of natural areas. Urban Design is one of the important issues for landscape architecture. It is a common point of architecture, planning, and the landscape architecture profession. It helps to create sustainable, healthy spaces in urban development. Rural planning and development is the core issue of landscape architecture that makes a balance between natural and human interactions.

This book project welcomes research papers related to all Landscape Architecture topics. We hope to provide an opportunity for Landscape Architecture researchers to distribute information to the academic community.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Mia Miskulin

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
