I want to add to Adams list of worthwhile literature a book called
"Healing gardens" by Clare Cooper Marcus and Marni Barnes
published in 1999 in the Wiley Series in Healthcare and snior living design,
which is a rich source of references on the topic you are concerned with.
In addition I advise you to get in contact with Prof. Robin C. Moore from
North Carolina State University firstname.lastname@example.org
who wrote an article on "Healing gardens for children" in this book, quoting
several research findings. He may be helpful to find original sources.
