About this book

Environmental science integrates physical and biological sciences to the study of the environment, with the goal of solving today's environmental challenges. Many of these challenges tie into a greater concept of using the earth's resources sustainably.

This collection brings together some very important advances in environmental science, including how climate change affects plant disease, how to keep birds and bats away from wind turbines, disinfecting polluted water for drinking, how climate policy impacts natural habitats, cancer risk due to ecological issues, and much more.

Biography

Professor William Hunter III has been fishing and studying fish since he was a very small child, as he grew up on a small lake, enjoying what the lake had to offer year round. He transformed his love of fishing into the academic study of marine ecology, with a master's degree from the State University of New York at Buffalo with a specific focus in ecology and evolution.

He has done extensive research in the fields of limnology and the effect of water quality on aquatic life. His work is currently funded by the U.S. National Science Foundation, where he oversees research into the effects of a municipal sewer project on the water chemistry and aquatic life of the New York state lake where he lived during his childhood.
