With every country now being forced to reassess how it exploits natural and man-made resources, and with the corresponding growth in environmental legislation, government, local government, business, and interest groups have never been more aware of the importance of staying informed about environmental issues.
But as interest in the environment has grown so has the number of information sources, making it difficult for researchers to decide which ones are really important. That's where this guide can help -- providing researchers with details of all the best information sources on environmental problems in one handy volume. All the main types of information sources are covered including online and CD-ROM databases, printed publications, and key organizations.
This guide includes: technical, government, business, and patents information; UK and EC legislation; environmental auditing, assessment, and policy; sources of information on pollution, waste disposal, and recycling, energy, transport, conservation, agriculture, and food; and detailed appendices and indexes.
