"Pennsylvania has 6 major watersheds: the Ohio, the Genesee, the Susquehanna, the Delaware, the Erie, and the Potomac. Conservation districts are actively working to protect Pennsylvania’s watersheds." (Website)
The Encyclopedia of Environment and Society brings together multiplying issues, concepts, theories, examples, problems, and policies, with the goal of clearly explicating an emerging way of thinking about people and nature. With more than 1,200 entries written by experts from incredibly diverse fields, this innovative resource is a first step toward diving into the deep pool of emerging knowledge. The five volumes of this Encyclopedia represent more than a catalogue of terms. Rather, they capture the spirit of the moment, a fascinating time when global warming and genetic engineering represent only two of the most obvious examples of socio-environmental issues.
This fully updated, full-color fourth edition of the award-winning Environmental Encyclopedia features approximately 1, 300 signed articles providing in-depth, worldwide coverage of environmental topics and issues. Articles are written in nontechnical language, providing current status and analysis, and suggesting solutions whenever possible. Entries range from 200-2, 000 words and many are accompanied by full-color images and diagrams. Multidisciplinary in scope, the Environmental Encyclopedia is the perfect resource for environmental studies and sciences classes as well as other disciplines touching on environmental issues.
A Dictionary of Environment and Conservation provides entries on scientific and social aspects of the environment—its key thinkers, treaties, movements, organizations, concepts, and theories. Covering subjects such as sustainable development, biodiversity, and environmental ethics, this is the ideal reference for students of environment and conservation, as well as for professionals in the field.
Consists of over 300 A to Z entries relating to these subjects, expanding on Oxford’s coverage in works such as A Dictionary of Environment & Conservation. It includes key terms associated with fossil- and nuclear-fueled energy systems, renewable energy sources such as solar thermal, bioenergy, tidal power and wind power, and energy costings.
