This edition pays particular attention to the scientific and social scientific background to environmental planning. Specific topics covered include: environmentally-sustainable agriculture; mulit-purpose forestry; the management of designated areas; urban wildlife; land resource evaluation; and environmental impact assessment. The conclusion reviews methods for managing information and making decisions.
