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.
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
