Through a comprehensive set of articles, The Oxford Encyclopedia of the Environment and Human Health presents an account of our current understanding of the relationship between diverse aspects of the physical environment and human health and wellbeing.
The Oxford Encyclopedia of Environmental Economics presents our understanding of the character and evolution of this relatively broad field in its macro and micro terms.
The Oxford Encyclopedia of Water Resources Management and Policy includes a global editorial board overseeing sections on concepts (economic, social, political, legal, governmental), global conditions (patterns of use, climate change, water development paths), policy instruments (water supply augmentation, pricing, demand management, tools, game-theoretic approaches), and special topics (river restoration, watershed management, groundwater management, innovative projects, emerging issues)
The Oxford Encyclopedia of Agriculture and the Environment focuses on historical and contemporary relationships between agriculture, the environment, and how we understand that interaction. Articles on contemporary issues are included, such as the relative merits of GMO crops, synthetic fertilizers, pesticides and herbicides, and the role of agriculture in climate change. Throughout, topical contributions are integrated into an over-arching perspective on the human footprint through terrestrial food production.
