Description

At a time when concern for the environment is rapidly growing, there is also a need for informed analysis that cuts through the confusion and rhetoric surrounding discussions of environmental issues. This work does not simply focus on crises, but the management of the environment and the exploration of the issues from many angles. This work explores the connection between human activities and the environment, assessing environmental problems and how they can and are being addressed. It clearly relates the interaction of the natural world and human society. Following an introductory section, the work takes a regional approach. It examines key issues related to resources, pollution, land degradation, and ecosystems, as well as possible solutions to problems with prospects for research and international cooperation. With an informative and colorful assortment of over 270 photographs, maps, and diagrams, this reference will provide a clear understanding of how pollution and other environmental problems occur, as well as possible solutions.show more
