New AERU authored textbook book published by 5m Books.
Modern agriculture faces many social, economical and environmental
challenges. This comprehensive publication details the current state of
agri-environmental management in Europe from both a policy and
practical perspective, and discusses a number of the issues faced,
- Climate change, energy and air pollution.
- Water use and quality.
- Biodiversity management.
- Land use, soils and nutrient management.
- Livestock and pathogenic organisms.
These and other issues form the frameworkof the book, and are
discussed in order toanswer the questions 'why is it an issue','what
is the current scientific understandingregarding it‘, ‘what can be
done about it’ and 'how has policy shaped it'.
The book takes an integrated approach to the problem, by both
examining the issues separately and as part of a holistic approach to
farm management. It also considers technologies and solutions which are
being developed for future use and scans the horizon for the
environmental challenges of the future.
Agri-environmental Management in Europe is an authoritative source for both undergraduate and post-graduate studies.
