About this book

Written to help researchers and environmental managers tackle environmental problems, this book presents models as reference points for specific plans of action. The first part of the book focuses on the type of ecosystem, while the second focuses on the different types of environmental problems. Beginning chapters presents available models for every ecosystem in the world and are followed by models of relevant environmental problems. The author explains which models to use in particular situations. Areas covered include lakes, estuaries, and rivers. Environmental problems covered include oxygen depletion, species diversity, and ground water pollution.
