    Here is an alphabetical list of books about Highways, Roads, and "Roadside Features", both historic and modern, compiled by a librarian, that are currently available. Click on the image or title for additional information and availability (purchases are provided by ). In this book, Collinge evaluates this body of research, expertly synthesizing all that is known about the ecology of fragmented landscapes. Expanding on the traditional coverage of this topic, Collinge also discusses disease ecology, restoration, conservation, and planning.

    Here, There, Elsewhere draws together for the first time William Least Heat-Moon's greatest short-form travel writing. Taking us from Japan, England, Italy, and Mexico to Long Island, Oregon, Arizona, and more,, Here, There, Elsewhere is a sharply observed, funny, and touching series of uncommon adventures narrated by America's keenest writer of place, people, and sublime connection. We live in an increasingly fragmented world, with islands of natural habitat cast adrift in a sea of cleared, burned, logged, polluted, and otherwise altered lands. Nowhere are fragmentation and its devastating effects more evident than in the tropical forests. By the year , more than half of these forests will have been cut, causing increased soil erosion, watershed destabilization.

    Research and monitoring is an important aspect of road ecology, encompassing all phases of a transportation project. This book covers research and monitoring to span the entire project continuum – starting with planning and design, through construction and into maintenance and management. Road ecology is the study of the ecological effects (both positive and negative) of roads and highways (public roads). Conservation Group had initiated an awareness drive named PATH an acronym for Provide Animals safe Transit on Highways covering more t km in India to highlighting the importance of safe driving on forest roads.
