Biological and Environmental Hazards, Risks, and Disasters provides an integrated look at major disasters of the biosphere that have significant implications for many of the world’s people: plagues and pandemics, wildfires, non-native species, deforestation, desertification, and locusts.

This fascinating volume from Elsevier’s Hazards and Disasters Series takes a geoscientific approach to the topic and contains new insights about how biological disasters affect hazardous processes, underscoring the relationship between biological disasters to other natural disasters. In addition, this book covers current thinking about directly-related social science issues, such as how disasters can affect lives and impact property.

  • Presents the latest research on causality, economic impacts, fatality rates, and preparedness and mitigation
  • Includes numerous tables, maps, diagrams, illustrations, photographs, and video captures of hazardous processes
  • Includes an examination of animals as hazards
