903 pages




Covering associations, research centers, publications, educational programs, government agencies, consultants, Web sites, green product catalogs, grant programs, and other resources, this guide provides listings for 6,756 environmental resources, typically giving full contact information, and occasionally a brief description. The listings are primarily organized by type of resource, but subchapters are organized by such environmental issues as air quality, business, disaster preparedness, energy, health, habitat recycling, pollution, development, travel, and water resources. After the listings (updated for this edition), the volume presents 102 tables and charts of statistics and metro area rankings related to such topics as air quality, brownfields, children's environmental health, endangered species, environmental finances, global warming, habitats, hazardous waste, noise pollution, and toxic exposures. Appendices include a glossary of terms as defined by the Environmental Protection Agency and a listing of abbreviations and acronyms. Finally indices provide listings of the resource entries by alphabetical order, by state, and by 250 environmental subject categories.
