9780521736695: Understanding Environmental Pollution

The third edition of this well-received textbook delivers a concise overview of global and individual environmental pollution for undergraduate courses, presenting students with the tools to assess environmental issues. With more than 30% new material, Hill assesses pollution from an international perspective, including air and water pollution, global warming, energy, solid and hazardous waste, and pollution at home. Both the sources and impacts of pollution are addressed, as well as governmental, corporate, and personal responsibility for pollution, and pollution prevention is emphasized throughout. Non-technical language encourages greater understanding of these often complex issues, and thought-provoking 'Delving Deeper' exercises are included, increasing engagement with the text and enabling students to apply what they have learned. A new chapter on the chemistry basics of pollution links to sections on toxicology and risk assessment, helping students understand concerns over chemicals and their regulation. An essential review of environmental pollution for environmental science students.

Recensione:

'… provides a thorough background to pollution, from global issues to personal pollution in the home … an excellent introduction to the subject, providing the right information to enable students to evaluate environmental problems for themselves.' Environmental Assessment Magazine

'… clear and well organised.' Waste Planning

'… a useful 'primer' for students … There is a wealth of statistical information given, and jargon is either studiously avoided or fully explained.' Journal of Biological Education

'… It is a brave author who is prepared to tackle such a diverse subject but past success and a ready market are reflected in the fact that this is a third edition … Overall, this is a tour de force which marshals a huge volume of information in its 585 pages; this renders it a valuable teaching aid which is its primary aim and there are few competitors. It contains numerous graphs and diagrams, some photographs, is good on definitions, chapter-by-chapter further reading and internet resources as well as in-chapter questions to prompt enquiry. Any teacher/lecturer of pollution and related issues will find this book an asset.' Bulletin of the British Ecological Society
