encompasses environmental planning and management in its widest sense. It includes development planning and control, planning processes and methods, housing, transport, environmental management and resource planning, design, environmental quality and conservation, tourism and leisure planning and similarly related areas. The focus is on high quality texts, including Readers, for both students and practitioners. This new edition of Methods of Environmental Impact Assessment is a practical up-to-date explanation and guide to how EIAs are, and should be, carried out for specific environment components (e.g. air, water, ecological systems, socio-economic systems). For each component, it includes a discussion of relevant regulations and standards, how baseline surveys are conducted, how impact predictions are made, what mitigation measures can be used, how the effectiveness of such measures should be monitored, and the limitations of the methods. This new edition has a new second part, consisting of chapters on 'cross-cutting' methods that can be applied to, and can often facilitate integration between, many of the environmental components discussed in the first part.
