Overview for Questions and Answers in Environmental Science
What are the functions of an ecosystem? What is minor forest produce? Define watershed. What is composite disaster mapping? What is demographic stochasticity? What makes the Ramsar Convention significant? The sustainable future of humanity lies in understanding the earth and its environment. For this reason, environmental science has a purview that overlaps several other disciplines; from biology to economics, geology to sociology, every subject has a significant relationship with some area of environmental science. However, it is often difficult, time-consuming and exhaustive to keep pace with new trends in such a broad-based field. This book uses brief entries packed with information to answer more than 1,500 questions that form the core of environmental studies. Though the chapters are sorted by subject, the reader can move freely between questions in order to best understanding the inter-connections that shape this topic. Questions and Answers in Environmental Science also include a section with multiple-choice question, fill in the blanks and match the columns that will help test oneâ€™s reading of the subject.
