9780748624911: Managing Scotland's Environment

Scotland's natural environment is its most treasured asset and the subject of its most vociferous debates. In this book Charles Warren tackles the hottest current debates - land reform, the future of farming, public access, conservation of moorland and birds of prey, the place of forestry, and the control of alien species and red deer - and takes up the challenge of integrating conservation with social and economic objectives. The second edition includes a new chapter on energy and the environment, taking in the highest profile environmental issue in Scotland at present: the windfarm controversy, and debates about the appropriate energy mix for the future. There is also a heightened focus throughout on climate change and its implications for the management of Scotland's environment. In addition, the book has been updated throughout to take account of recent changes in environmental and related social and political issues.

Review:

Those who actually wish to help to solve Scotland's environmental problems will find this an invaluable survey and an inspiration. And those who simply want to be better informed could not do better than read it. -- Chris Smout This is a welcome and timely publication on environmental issues in Scotland. It captures the tensions of ongoing debates, the likely implications of impending policy changes and future challenges!a useful textbook for students as well as providing an overview for professionals and a good read for a wider audience. Journal of Environmental Planning and Management Warren successfully integrates the theoretical and the practical... The issues may have a local context but many of them have a global resonance. This is an unusual book that deserves international interest as well as attention from within Scotland. -- Alexander Mather Land Use Policy Charles Warren succeeds in doing Scotland a masterful service by producing a brilliant compilation of environmental facts, figures, policies and debates all nested in national, British and European context... I prophesy that Warren's book will come to be seen as the Bible of Scots environmentalism. -- Alastair McIntosh Warren's book is extremely timely and welcome! The book is wide ranging, covering key land uses, debates and policy measures, together with principles and practices of the environmental management! The text is detailed and extremely well documented. Journal of Rural Studies No other book in the field is as comprehensive or as dispassionate. -- Roger Crofts, former Chief Executive of Scottish Natural Heritage I admit to a considerable degree of admiration for an author who can bring together so much information about the Scottish environment. His breadth of knowledge is reflected in the extensive reference list, and these references are well used in the text. This is clearly a book that should be used by students studying any aspect of environmental science, and it provides an excellent source of material for exploring many subjects in greater detail. It can also be easily read by anyone with an interest in Scotland's environment and the factors that drive change BSS News There has been a series of books over the past few years that have attempted to assess the state of Scotland's environment and put into context current controversies over its use and management..[Managing Scotland's Environment] is the best attempt I've seen..if you want a single book that covers the state of Scotland's environment, look no further. Reforesting Scotland This most readable book ... admirably describes the ever-changing topography of the playing field and is strongly recommended. Forestry Charles Warren has done us all a service in distilling the many and varied environmental management issues in a way which both stimulates further reflection and does not raise ones ire...This is a comprehensive, up to date, measured and well-referenced account of many of the issues concerning the management of Scotland's environment at the turn of the Millennium! No other book in the field is as comprehensive or as dispassionate. I warmly commend it and hope that the author will keep it updated. Recorder News A masterly review of the literature ! the text is clearly written and easily accessible ! provides a valuable exploration of many of Scotland's current land management issues and provides important linkages between them !
