Encyclopedia of Environmental Issues by Craig W. Allin (Editor)The set contains 772 alphabetically arranged articles. They cover a wide variety of topics, including endangered animal species, air pollution, national parks, environmental legislation, oil spills, alternative energy sources, and global climate change.

The new Second Edition updates more than half of the original entries and adds new perspectives and content.
