International experts provide a comprehensive picture of the principles, concepts and methods that are applicable to problems originating from the interaction between the living/non-living environment and mankind. Both the analysis of such problems and the way solutions to environmental problems may work in specific societal contexts are addressed. Disciplinary approaches are discussed but there is a focus on multi- and interdisciplinary methods. A large number of practical examples and case studies are presented. There is special emphasis on modelling and integrated assessment. This book is different because it stresses the societal, cultural and historical dimensions of environmental problems. The main objective is to improve the ability to analyse and conceptualise environmental problems in context and to make readers aware of the value and scope of different methods. Ideal as a course text for students, this book will also be of interest to researchers and consultants in the environmental sciences.

Since the publication of the first edition of this book in 1981, it has been widely used as a textbook at university level for graduate courses in environmental management, environmental science and environmental technology (for non-engineers). As this second edition is significantly improved, it should find an even wider application than the first. In the second edition, the section on ecotoxicology and effects on pollutants has been expanded considerably, as has Chapter 4 on ecological principles and concepts. Further improvement has been made by the addition of a section on ecological engineering - the application of ecologically sound technology in ecosystems - and an appendix on environmental examination of chemicals. The problems of agricultural waste have been included in Part B, and in Chapter 6 on waste water treatment, several pages have been added about non-point sources and the application of ``soft'' technology. Throughout the book, more examples, questions and problems have been included, and several figures and tables have been added to better illustrate the text.

Primarily intended as a text for undergraduate students of engineering for their core course in environmental studies, this book gives a clear introduction to the fundamental principles of ecology and environmental science and aptly summarizes the relationship between ecology and environmental engineering. Divided into three parts, the book begins by discussing the biosphere, natural resources, ecosystems, biodiversity, and community health. Then it goes on to give detailed description on topics such as pollution and control, environmental management, and sustainable development. Finally, it focuses on environmental chemistry, environmental microbiology, and monitoring and analysis of pollutants.

This book fulfills the need for a practical, clearly written introductory textbook on fundamental concepts and basic applications of principles of environmental science. It is designed to cover the curriculum of B.Sc. and M.Sc. courses in Environmental Science. Besides students, the basic knowledge of environmental management is highly essential today for regulators, industrial managers, and environmental activists. The book provides comprehensive information on all relevant components relating to environmental issues in industries, the purpose being to sensitize the management staff to various environmental laws and regulations. The book not only gives a thorough treatment of all individual environmental components but also suggests strategies for improvement of environment quality. It discusses various pollution control methodologies along with waste minimization and resource conservation. An attempt is also made to blend the legal guidelines and statutory compliance with technical and scientific approach. Various environmental management tools have been discussed. Management of hazardous chemicals has been dealt with in a separate chapter.
