(Mitsch, 1993, 1996; Mitsch and Jorgenson, 1989), and he has established a model field laboratory on the Ohio State University campus for the study of alternative wetland designs (see Chapter 9).
Thus, although ecological engineering is presented here as a new field, it has been developing for the last 30 years. The ideas initiated by H. T. Odum are now appearing with greater frequency in the literature (Berryman et al., 1992; Schulze, 1996). Of note, a journal called Ecological Engineering was started in 1992, with Mitsch as editor-in-chief, and two professional societies have been formed (the International Ecological Engineering Society founded in 1993 and the American Ecological Engineering Society founded in 2001).
