This summary highlights major points discussed throughout the book. To conserve biodiversity, a variety of people must be engaged in the creation and maintenance of a subdivision development. Policy makers create the enabling conditions in which developers and residents implement novel solutions; developers build the framework of a community, which shapes how homes, yards, and neighborhoods perform; and residents make daily decisions that promote or hinder the conservation value of subdivisions. Subdivision design, while important, is not enough, and construction and postconstruction management must become points of emphasis in green developments. A final case study is presented in which a new subdivision has incorporated some of the design, construction, and postconstruction points illustrated in the book.
