Product description


The definitive book in its field. ― Aslib Book Guide


"Marine Pollution is a highly recommended introductory text for those who are studying or dealing with one of the many aspects of marine sciences". Journal of Marine Systems, 2002 [The fifth edition of] this timeless book ... is updated (again) and revised (again) and is indeed an excellent book (again). What is so good about it is the way it neatly extracts key subjects and issues, and distils them into fairly short, clear and concise sections. This is particularly valuable for people who need a brief account of something not normally in their own field ... The diagrams ... are almost universally excellent and clear - a worthy component of a thoroughly good book. Marine Pollution Bulletin, v.42 n.9, 2001 `The ten chapters of this third edition of Marine Pollution are, as previously, packed full of information presented in a logical, methodical sequence and with the refreshing clarity indicative of an author who not only knows his subject inside out but is capable of imparting that knowledge to others in a clear and concise way.'' Environmental Policy and Practice, Oct/Nov 1992 `This textbook is a clear and objective introduction to marine pollution ... The third edition of this highly acclaimed book has been extensively revised to give the most up-to-date information available and to reflect current international views on marine pollution.' Journal of the Marine Biological Association of the United Kingdom, Volume 73, number 1, 1993 `Environmental enthusiasts will find this revised third edition covering marine pollutants and their environmental impact to be a valuable reference.' Biological Abstracts/RRM, Volume 44, Issue 10, May 1993 `This is the third edition of a well-known book ... I find "Marine Pollution" a complete success and of valuable assistance to any undergraduate student involved with the subject ...a book which presents an excellent combination of readability, high scientific standards, actuality and scientific rationale on marine pollution ... an ideal introductory textbook.' Michael O. Angelidis, Environemntal Pollution 81 (1993) `this is a well-organized introduction to an important field ... Students and scientists with an interest in a safe and healthy environment, and people who will settle for nothing less than impartial facts and basic knowledge, will undoubtedly benefit from this book.' Israel Journal of Zoology, Vol. 39, 1993 `This fourth edition of "Marine Pollution" is a well-illustrated, readable, basic text. ... it is an affordable text for students and libraries with limited funding.' Journal of Natural History, 1997 `it should certainly encourage students, as set out in the Preface, to think independently.' James G. Wilson, University of Dublin, Journal of Experimental Marine Biology and Ecology, 218 (1997) `important book ... In my review of the previous edition I described it as 'very readable, well-illustrated and informative', to which I would only add that this edition is also bang up-to-date. It is ideal for anyone who wants to find out more about the subject, and I reckon that even those working as specialists in pollution will find it a useful source of guidance in matters outside their particular field of study.' John Wright, Ocean Challenge, 7(3) 1998
