A Dictionary of Environment and ConservationThis dictionary contains over 8,500 entries on all aspects of the environment and conservation. International in scope, it embraces a broad spectrum of environmental areas including sustainable development, biodiversity, conservation, environmental ethics, philosophy, history, resource management, sociology, and environmental policy. In addition to its wide-ranging concise definitions, A Dictionary of Environment and Conservation includes longer key entries on topics such as Anatarctica, Gaia, hypothesis, genetic engineering, the Kyoto Protocol, and the United Nations Conference on Environmental Development. It address the social, legal, political, and economic aspects of the environment and conservation, as well as scientific terms. The dictionary is also supplemented with an invaluable selection of 10 appendices, including international hazard assessment scales (including the Beaufort scale, the Richter scale, and the Fujita tornado scale), the geologic timescale, and an appendix of useful websites for further study. Concise and wide-ranging, this is an essential work of reference for students and professionals, and anyone with an interest in the environment and conservation.
