Description

The Concise Lexicon of Environmental Terms is a unique guide to the complex language of contemporary environmental legislation and policy.

It includes:
* practical and concise definitions of over 650 environmental terms and reference
* information on the many different environmental organisations and how they can be contacted
* a guide to scientific abbreviations
* a glossary of acronyms
* a schedule of selected EC directives
* further references where appropriate


The lexicon will be a vital source of information for lawyers, particularly when dealing with expert evidence. It will also prove an invaluable first point of reference for professional advisers, policy-makers, lobbyists, students and those within business and industry affected by environmental legislation.

"...offers a wealth of information to a very broad range of people. ...fills a much needed gap."--Environmental Assessment
