In GIS for Environmental Management, Robert Scally has compiled the firsthand experiences of scientists and GIS experts throughout the world to examine how dedicated environmental professionals use GIS technology to preserve and renew critical ecosystems in order to benefit wildlife as well as human lives. The case studies in this book explore how biologists, geologists, conservationists, and others responsible for managing and protecting the environment rely on GIS to help them deal with a range of environmental issues, including biodiversity and pollution, coastal zone management, and change detection.
