Urban Forestry - Taming Precipita
Georgia Southern faculty member John T. Van Stan II co-authored Urban Forestry - Taming Precipita alongside non-faculty members Jan Friesen, Tyasetta and Siloy.
Since the beginning of human settlement, people have observed water in its many forms, recording the ways that water supports and subverts life... like a cunning and capricious witch. This is the story of Precipita, the waterwitch of Leipzig Germany, and the critical roles that urban forests play in protecting the city from her hydrological whims! This science comic was based on a book chapter "Urban Forestry: An Underutilized Tool in Water Management" in "Advanced Tools for Integrated Water Resources Management" by Van Stan, Underwood, and Friesen (Elsevier).
