Contents Notes
"Derived from the world-renowned McGraw-Hill Dictionary of Scientific and Technical Terms, Sixth Edition, this reference offers a wealth of essential information in a portable, convenient, quick-find format. Whether you're a professional, a student, a writer, or a general reader with an interest in science, there is no better or more authoritative way to stay up-to-speed with the current language of environmental science and technology or gain an understanding of its key ideas and concepts." "Written in clear, simple language understandable to the general reader, yet in-depth enough for scientists, educators, and advanced students, the McGraw-Hill Dictionary of Environmental Science: features 8,800 entries encompassing the language of environmental science and technology; includes synonyms, acronyms, and abbreviations; provides pronunciations for all terms; covers terms relevant to environmental science and technology from such fields as agriculture, botany, chemical engineering, civil engineering, climatology, ecology, forestry, genetics and evolution, geochemistry, geography and mapping, meteorology, microbiology, mycology, oceanography, petroleum and mining engineering, plant pathology, systematics, and zoology; and includes an appendix containing measurement conversion tables, tables of useful data, and charts."--Jacket.
