Contents Notes
As concern for the environment has grown, so has a whole new academic discipline, embracing such preciously disparate areas as ecology, chemistry, economics, engineering, biochemistry, politics and sociology. This dictionary, which is now in its second edition including additional and expanded entries, provides both the student and the general reader with a working knowledge of the scientific and technical terminology associated with environment studies and appraisals of current issues. With many of the entries covered in some depth, not just two or three lines, the book is also embellished with many useful diagrams and tables, a list of relevant addresses and a guide to further reading.
