A Handbook of Environmental Management presents a range of case studies that demonstrate the complementary application of different social science techniques in combination with ecology-based management thinking to the natural environment. Contemporary environmental management is characterised by an increasing awareness of the need for interdisciplinary approaches. This requires managers to effectively combine insights from both the natural and social sciences in order to ensure sustainable outcomes. This eloquent and unique Handbook provides a broad overview, complemented by specific case studies and techniques that are used in environmental management from the local level to international environmental regimes. With contributions from leading authorities in the field, this invative volume provides a valuable teaching aid for students, as well as an insightful and practical reference tool for environmental practitioners with background in the social sciences. Environmental managers and policymakers attempting to learn about, and integrate thinking from, the social sciences should also t be without this important resource.
