About this book

The Great Lakes Basin in North America holds more than 20 percent of the world's fresh water. Threats to habitats and biodiversity have economic, political, national security, and cultural implications and ramifications that cross the US-Canadian border. This multidisciplinary book presents recent research to demonstrate the interconnected nature of the challenges facing the basin.

Chapters by US and Canadian scholars and practitioners represent a wide range of natural science and social science fields, including environmental sciences, geography, political science, natural resources, mass communications, environmental history and communication, public health, and economics. Biodiversity, Conservation and Environmental Management in the Great Lakes Basin covers threats from invasive species, industrial development, climate change, agricultural and chemical runoff, air emissions, dependence on fossil fuels, energy exploration and hydraulic fracturing, disease and pollution. Overall the book provides political, cultural, economic and social contexts for recognising and addressing the environmental challenges faced by the Great Lakes Basin.
