About this book

This superb and highly-acclaimed dictionary includes over 4000 in-depth entries on scientific and technical terminology associated with environmental protection and resource management. In addition, it contains numerous illustrations, a wide range of international case studies and extensive cross-references to guide the reader.

The new edition is a major update with 30 per cent new material, additional illustrations and a greatly expanded list of relevant web resources.

It is forecast to continue as an indispensable reference. (Pollution, September 2000) " the literary equivalent of a brain transplant." (Environment Business, November 2000) "...Porteous' book will contribute to better understanding and protection of world's environment..." (Photosynthetica, Vol.40, No.2, 2002)
