About this book

In-depth treatment of the effects of pollution, and other disturbances in the environment, including toxic gases and metals, acidification of watersheds, forest decline, oil pollution, pesticides and chemical waste. Also included are examples and case studies and an extensive bibliography.

This book definitely fills a niche different from that of any [of]their work on the environment and ecology. An intense effort was made to make this a useful teaching tool, and it shows. For the many biologists... this would be excellent as a textbook or an addition to their personal libraries. --THE QUARTERLY REVIEW OF BIOLOGY "Well-illustrated and well-produced and the several indexes are useful and comprehensive... a useful source of material and it will provide a good introduction to an important subject area." --JOURNAL OF BIOGEOGRAPHY
