About this book

There is much public concern about threats to global biodiversity. The most direct association with chemistry is through pollution being identified as a cause; another is climate change resulting from the build-up of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. Changing agricultural practices, including the use of herbicides and pesticides, also impact on biodiversity. This book addresses these concerns by detailing some of the research currently in progress.

Biodiversity Assessment and Change - The Challenge of Appropriate Methods; The Role of Natural and Anthropogenic Drivers and Pressure on Biodiversity in Europe; The Implementation of International Biodiversity Initiatives; Measuring Constraints and Successes; Impacts of Land Use Change on Biodiversity; Impacts of Invasive Non-Indigenous plants; Deep-sea Biodiversity; Threatened Habitats: Marginal Vegetation in Upland Areas; Threats to Arthropods in Boreal and North Temperate Forests; Impacts of Agricultural Change on Farmland Biodiversity; Patterns of and Threats Against Insect Biodiversity; Tropical Forest Biodiversity; Subject Index.

Media reviews
The present book provides a very valuable introduction into environmental science and technology in general, and biodiversity in particular, for those who are not specialists in this area. This is a timely, thoughtful and authoritative account of the current state of play on the ecological battlefront. -- Chemistry World, January 2008, 64 (Dennis Rouvray) Chemistry World
