About this book

Environmental impact assessment is one of the most topical subjects in environmental science at present, yet it is also one of the most poorly understood - used as an environmental management buzzword rather than as a scientific technique. This new book is an overview of the discipline. Introductory chapters summarize environmental legislation and then move on to discuss the basic science behind assessment. Later chapters look at the assessment process itself, discuss monitoring techniques, and review case studies of good practice.
