About this book

As the authors of this book point out, the problems in connecting scientific discovery to science-based policy are systemic. The process - currently structured in a futile effort to separate policy from science - is dysfunctional in many respects. The book analyzes this dysfunction and offers recommendations for incorporating formal science and other important types of knowledge into the environmental policymaking process.

This book is a lucid, concise, yet comprehensive primer on how environmental science and policy interact in the governing process and how that interaction can be improved. --Walter A. Rosenbaum, Director Emeritus, Bob Graham Center for Public Service, University of Florida
