This work is designed to provide an analytical framework for problem-solving and research work within a resource management course for advanced undergraduate students in geography. The author has attempted to cover the material which he thinks necessary for such students. Thus the book is designed to demonstrate the relevance of work in physical and human geography, and to make students aware of the relevance of different research thrusts (ecological, spatial and regional) in geography. They are then more able both to identify fundamental research issues and to relate geographic research directly to policy needs and problems. The author also aims to show that an interdisciplinary approach is necessary for analysis of may resource management problems. The first chapter identifies some key ideas as well as discussing research thrusts and issues in geography. The second chapter outlines some of the issues which arise in research and subsequent chapters are each devoted to a substantive area of inquiry in resource analysis. For this second edition, changes in research activity and emphasis are noted and new examples have been introduced to reflect work in resource analysis during the 1980s, and in providing new examples, attention has been given to broadening the range of studies from Third World or developing nations. The author assumes a knowledge of both physical and human geography, but a knowledge of research methods and quantitative techniques is not essential.
