Resource and Environmental Management by Bruce MitchellIn order to optimally manage the environment and natural resources, it is vitally important to recognize that there is much more to consider than just the environment itself and the natural resources it provides. A key consideration is also the interrelationship between natural ecosystems andhuman involvement and behavior. This interaction is where the field of environmental resource management comes into play: the complex ecological and sociological systems of the natural world intertwined. The purpose of this book is to consider such matters, and to help readers develop their owncapacities as environmental managers and stewards.Bruce Mitchell's textbook Resource and Environmental Management served as the gold standard for many environmental science courses when the first edition published in 1997. Now, twenty years later, an updated third edition allows for the inclusion of recent developments. The book covers the basictheories and concepts of environmental resource management, and guides students to be able to apply those concepts to practical situations. By covering basic theories and concepts, and by using case studies to show how these have been applied, Bruce Mitchell's new edition seeks to ensure thatstudents have competence in both aspects. The text enhances the reader's capacity to conduct practice and research in resource and environmental management.
Environmental Management by Eugene WrightIn recent years, the topic of environmental responsibility has been affecting policymakers and markets, and it has become a relevant issue in the multidisciplinary discussion between scientists and practitioners. Most countries have adopted new regulations and economic instruments to support environmental sustainability; at the same time, many organizations have adopted environmental policies and management tools such as the Environmental Management System (EMS). This book reviews the past, present and future of environmental management. It combines a review of differential game models of the ecological-economic systems and respective analytical techniques with original results in game theoretic modeling of the sustainable environmental management; summarizes the results derived from four surveys conducted in Italy from 2008 to 2015, that involved the Italian ISO 14001 certified organizations in exploring their interest on the adoption of other environmental tools and labels; presents a holistic framework for analyzing, assessing and improvement of environmental management in agriculture, and assesses the forms, factors and efficiency of agro-eco-management in Bulgaria during post-communist transition, European integration, and EU CAP implementation; and finally, presents key environmental and climate change challenges and opportunities in the Balkan Peninsula and in relation to alignment to the European Union (EU).
