Title: Environmental planning and management

The book provides a overview and discussion of all major aspects of environmental planning and management. It highlights the causes and interrelationships of environmental problems, emphasizing the important economic and ecological functions of the land as the stage for all human activities and the ''source'' and ''sink'' for all physical resources. A ''cradle to grave'' discussion of the flow of resources - from acquisition through transformation, distribution, and disposal - is a key feature of the book. The author proceeds from a review of the overall problems, principles, and practice of environmental planning and management to address the planning and management of water quality and quantity, air quality, toxic and solid wastes, and energy; the economic costs of environmental controls; and procedures for environmental impact statement writing and review. He concludes by summarizing the needs, alternatives, and practice of community environmental planning and management.
