Reviews of previous editions:

"This is a veritable Whitakers' Almanac of useful information on all aspects of science and the natural environment, and its author needs little introduction. It is as useful for dipping into - being crammed with fascinating facts - as it is for checking definitions. Essential for layman and specialist alike."
—Packaging Week

"...Porteous' book will contribute to better understanding and protection of the world's environment..."
Photosynthetica

"This dictionary is highly recommended as a valuable reference for both students and professionals working in environmental science and technology."
International Journal of Environment and Pollution

"...a formidable rival of many much more expensive and heavier volumes. Porteous succeeds to precisely describe the chosen terms without compromise to readability. Cross-references nicely bring together additional  or related information. The reader is often captured by the well-written text and is kept reading far beyond the sought-after term."
Environmental Geology

Dictionary of Environmental Science and technology, Fourth Edition will be an indispensable reference for all students and professionals concerned with the world's environment.
