“This special volume deserves a wider reading audience than ecologists and conservation researchers (for whom it is primarily intended). It should be read by all of us in environmental, pollution, and human ecology research. It offers most useful material to be discussed in classes on the interdisciplinary nature of environmental sciences.”  (International Journal for Environment and Pollution, 1 June 2014)
