Stock Description, May Not Reflect Item

Covers All Aspects of the Environment
Focusing on both problems and solutions, this authoritative reference work covers all aspects of the environment, from the Everglades to the Himalayas, from legislation in Australia to pollution problems in Eastern Europe, from tropical rain forests to the Porcupine Caribou herd of the Alaskan and Canadian Arctic. The "Encyclopedia" is filled with valuable information, encompassing studies of species (butterflies, bats, elephants, dolphins), conservation efforts, environmental organizations, treaties, toxic-chemical hazards, resource conservation, conservation concepts (biodiversity, landscape ecology) energy-use impacts, and other vital subjects. The coverage reflects environmental concerns that have dominated front-page headlines for the past four decades: from the "Exxon Valdez " to Bhopal and Chernobyl, from air pollution to Love Canal, from whale and dolphin preservation to rhino poaching.
Original Articles by Experts
Some of the best-known environmental professionals in the world have written original articles for this multidisciplinary "Encyclopedia," including Norman Myers, Eugene C. Hargrove, Reed F. Noss, Max Oelschlaeger, J. Baird Callicott, George Sessions, M.S. Swaminathan, Gilbert F. White, Michael E. Kraft, Michael P. Cohen, Paul Ekins, and many others. The authors are from 14 countries, and their expertise encompasses the sciences, the professions, social sciences, and humanities. Also represented are the perspectives of major environmental organizations and government agencies in six countries. Maintaining a healthy balance between science and social science, the "Encyclopedia" is very strong in law, politics, environmental organizations and history, legislation, and government agencies in the U.S., Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and the European Community.
A comprehensive subject index, extensive cross-references, and "see" and "see also" references with each article make it easy for users to pinpoint exactly the information they need. Also includes three maps.
