Media reviews
'All in all, The Encyclopaedic Dictionary of Environmental Change helps to make sense of the babel that can be so characteristic of the literature and conferences in the environmental sciences and gives excellent support when reading across the disciplines. But beware: if you enjoy following up cross-references, this book may bind your attention longer than you had intended.' -- NATURE '! a reference work which, because of its comprehensiveness and clarity of layout, prose and illustration, has something to offer everyone who, regardless of background, is concerned with environmental change and with the role played by people in it. This encyclopaedic dictionary can be thoroughly recommended as a gateway to deeper studies.' -- THE HOLOCENE 'The Encyclopaedic Dictionary of Environmental Change is a very valuable contribution to the literature on environmental change and the editors are to be congratulated for making an excellent job of such a large and difficult project.' -- QUATERNARY SCIENCE REVIEWS 'A valuable feature is the intensity of reference citation throughout; even some brief items have reference lists citing mainly primary sources in the scientific literature. This will be of considerable value to those wishing to follow up particular topics in greater detail ! Most of the references cited have the advantage of being relatively accessible, increasing their usefulness to undergraduate students ! The quality and clarity of writing is extremely high, as are the line drawings and diagrams.' -- BRITISH ECOLOGICAL SOCIETY BULLETIN ... this is very good value. I can strongly recommend this title. -- Reference Reviews 20031001
