Environmental Science

Editor in Chief | Area Editors | Articles and Contributors

Environmental Science arose from disparate disciplines as a distinct field in the last half of the 20th century. Initially fueled by awareness of environmental degradation, risk of species loss, and global climate change, it straddles the divisions and seeks to integrate synergies between them in research and application. This includes but is not limited to the physical sciences, the planning and social sciences, the health sciences, engineering, governance, policy, and more. Here, environmental physics, chemistry, and biology; risk analysis and public health; ecosystem governance, management, and planning; social and legal issues toward sustainability; and environmental engineering all come into play. Such complexity, which speaks to the cross-disciplinary nature of the science, also characterizes its diverse configurations in academia and research institutions. Oxford Bibliographies in Environmental Science engages this complexity. It provides the base for initiating, continuing, or expanding your research on all issues related to the environment and our interaction with it.

Editor in Chief

Ellen Wohl, PhD, is Professor of Geology, Department of Geosciences, Colorado State University, and a renowned expert on mountain streams.
