The encyclopedia provides basic knowledge for an integrated and ecologically sound management system. Nearly 400 alphabetical entries cover everything from air, soil, and water pollution to agriculture, energy, global pollution, toxic substances, and general pollution problems.

This allows readers to see the overall picture at a glance and find answers to the core questions:

  • What is the pollution problem, and what are its sources?
  • What is the "big picture," or what background knowledge do we need?
  • How can we diagnose the problem, both qualitatively and quantitatively, using monitoring and ecological models, indicators, and services?
  • How can we solve the problem with environmental technology, ecotechnology, cleaner technology, and environmental legislation?
  • How do we address the problem as part of an integrated management strategy?

This accessible encyclopedia examines the entire spectrum of tools available for environmental management. An indispensable resource, it guides environmental managers to find the best possible solutions to the myriad pollution problems they face.
