It covers not only scientific terms and concepts but also the multitude of abbreviations and acronyms that litter the burgeoning literature - both specialist and journalistic - on one of today's most important environmental issues. From "acid rain" to "zooplankton", from "ACCAD" to "WWW", the dictionary includes clear explanations of technical terms, spells out abbreviations and acronyms, explains the origins and roles of the many organizations and projects involved in monitoring changing climate and our responses to it, and incorporates the ecological And Biotic Dimensions Of The Subject.; Written To Be Accessible To The non-specialist, the dictionary should be useful to a wide readership.
