The A-Z of the Environment
A Complete Guide to all the Issues—Scientific, Legal, Economic and Social—and their Impact on Business and Government
The "environment" embraces many disciplines—ecology, law, physics, chemistry, biology, environmental health, toxicology, genetic engineering and radiology. This makes it difficult for business to get a handle on what about the environment is “need-to-know.”
The A-Z of the Environment fills this need for an authoritative yet accessible source of reference which expertly summarizes the legal, scientific, economic and social issues. It covers every topic and issue from Abatement Orders and Acid Rain to Waste Management and Workplace Exposure Limits. It explains the key terminology, current British legal requirements, the offences, the role of the statutory authorities and the principal environmental health issues.
