Author - E. Christopher Mare and Max O. Lindegger
Publisher - Permanent Publications

Permanent Publications says, "Designing Ecological Habitats is the third volume in the Four Keys to Sustainable Communities series and is an important and eloquent exploration of humanity’s limits to growth, addressing the problems arising from climate change, habitat destruction, population growth and resource depletion.

This is not a book of theoretical ideas but an anthology of solutions, of experience, tried and tested, from experts all over the world. The designs and practices included in this book present a vision for the future, already tested out in eco-villages, sustainable communities and projects in many countries. These are practical low carbon solutions which provide significant improvements in the quality of life.."

About the Author
Permanent Publications says, "E. Christopher Mare took a Permaculture Design Course in 1993 and has been a full time student ever since. Chris developed his own B.A. programme as the world’s first effort at organising the emerging discipline of Ecovillage Design into a formal degree. Two Masters degrees later, he is currently preparing for his doctoral dissertation through Fielding Graduate University in Santa Barbara."

Permanent Publications says, "Max O. Lindegger is a teacher in the disciplines of sustainable systems. His dynamic teaching style is born of 30 years of hands-on experience and leadership in the design and implementation of practical, workable solutions to the challenges of sustainability. Max has taught Ecovillage Design and Permaculture courses in over 24 countries. He was the creator, and for many years a Director, of the Oceania/Asia secretariat of the Global Ecovillage Network."
