Detecting ecological impacts Concepts and applications in coastal habitats


, : Detecting ecological impacts Concepts and applications in coastal habitats. Schmitt, R J , Osenberg, C W Detecting ecological impacts: Concepts and applications in coastal habitats xx+401p

The assessment of environmental impacts caused by human activities is complex both in theory and application. This book reviews the goals, models, and processes involved in ecological assessment with many of the examples coming from coastal and marine studies. One of the primary objects of the text is to enhance the usefulness of post-impact field studies in making predictions regarding similar future impacts. Eighteen chapters are grouped under four section headings. These sections cover: an introduction to the principles and goals of ecological impact assessment, improving field assessments of local impacts, extension of local impacts to larger scale consequences, and the link between administrative environmental impact studies and well-designed field assessments. The text, intended for decision makers, researchers, and advanced students, is illustrated and closes with a glossary and an index.
