"No, that is not so. There are a number of limiting factors for plants: soils, drainage, exposure, competing species,differences in microclimate,  lack of suitable pollinators, lack of suitable seedling conditions, etc., etc., etc."

"Western larch is more frost sensitive than its cousins. Early frosts will damage it while other larix species tend to start hardening off in mid-summer"

"Actually that is questionable. He is  certainly a sly businessman. But most of his accomplishments depended on cheating and stiffing governments and contractors. But now we are those contractors!"

"Thanks Robert. After reading Andrew's link I decided to simply contact the Project Manager. This project does require that planting plans be stamped."

Hope to see you there.

Hi, rob. I just wanted to tell you that I've enjoyed the insight and professionalism that you've brought to the discussions on this forum!

That's right Rob, We're neighbors, but now I'm on the same side of the river as you.
In the process of setting up an office in Riverdale. Perhaps we might meet sometime and schmooz a bit.

Thanks.

Thank you! I'm also very exited about Leipzig. Have you been to Zurich, the Masoala hall (Vogt Landscape architects)? Thats the next place i wanna visit. Or the Eden project in Cornwall...There are so many places to go to...
I am still looking for a project for my thesis. The one i had got cancelled, it was perfect...designing a tropical greenhouse w/ mainly rare plants but also some animals. But it's hard to find another greenhouse project. So maybe it's gonna be something for Humbolt penguins. But you are right, every animal is special and needs something special and it's perfect to have been a zoo keeper before.

Thank you for that information. I already know zoolex, it's pretty good though. But i am still hoping to find a nice book about what is important when you are planning for animals. or an interesting zoo architecture book. I have a brochure from Dr. Salzert and a nice book from August Künzel and some books for zookeepers. but its not the same like looking for example for "small gardens".
Are you also interested in greenhouses? If you ever go to Europe, you should go in may and visit the Royal Greenhouses Laeken in Bruxelles. They are only open 3 weeks a year but they are amazing. I've just been there because of my thesis and was stunned. it's unbelievable beautiful!

Hi Rob,
i was looking through the forum because i was searching for literature or informations about zoo design, thats how i got to your page and your website. I must say, it really looks like a dreamjob, isn't it?
Have a nice day!
