Editorial Reviews

From review by U. Ellis, University of OklahomaThe nearly 9,000 one-sentence entries in this dictionary treating all aspects of environmental science are drawn from McGraw-Hill Dictionary of Scientific an Technical Terms (6th ed., CH, Mar '03). For all terms, the work supplies pronunciations and indicates primary fields, of which there are 29 including agriculture, biology, chemistry, engineering, geology, medicine, meteorology, and general science and technology. The appendix offers several helpful features -- e.g. , a taxonomy of organisms (domains to orders), the periodic table, lists of major pollutants, and units of measurement....the breadth of coverage, pronunciation guidance, and handy appendix make it useful for quick reference. For general readers, students, and experts searching for terms outside their specialties. Summing Up: Recommended. All collections.
