Research Into Landscape
Tuesday, January 26, noon – 3:30 p.m. CST
Ecologists at universities, professional societies, and other scientific institutions commonly engage in research to better understand how plants operate in the wild. Unfortunately, landscape designers rarely access the resulting data or use it to enhance their projects. In this presentation, ecologist Stephen Handel and landscape designer Larry Weaner will present detailed case studies where research data was directly applied to the planted landscape. Examples will vary in scale from restoration to residential, and illustrate the concrete benefits that can be derived when designers seek out information from the highly relevant world of ecological restoration.
Instructor: Steven Handel & Larry Weaner
